Description
I actually attended this school in the 80's. Kids from the Victoria Harbour Public School was make fun of us and say it used to be the nail factory. This school consisted of one hallway, a library that doubled as a (carpeted) gym on rainy days, 5 classrooms (with split grades from JK/SK - grade 7/8), a teacher's lounge, supply room, and principal's office. There is a basement, which seems accessible. I plan to return later this year.

Hopefully, I'll have more information to provide. Currently, my only retirevable knowledge is that it was (and maybe currently) owned by the Grey Sisters, and their convent is atteched to the school. If I can, I'll talk to one of the local sisters.

I do have some photos of the old shoe factory, but I have to dig through some boxes to find them. I will post soon.

Anyone ever snap photos of that old shoe factory at the edge of town, or that abandoned factory near the water that had all those metal springy things littering the ground, or the trestle?

I attended this school for JK, circa 1974, along with my brother who was 3 years ahead of me. We used to take the short cut home for lunch using that hill....straight down to my grandparents place. Thanks for the memories!

Hi there, Im sorry to imform everyone, but this building was demolished this month. The hill is still being used by local children, but I am not sure what fate has in store for this property. St. Mary's no longer stands :(

I'll definetely take a look around. Some hitchhiking teens mentions that there was an access point. I also spoke to one of the former principals, and he said the Grey Nuns' convent is now a rented as apartments for seniors.

Thanks for commenting :)
