Our School
In 1837, a half-acre parcel of land was donated and secured for a schoolhouse. The first school built at Vellore was a log structure 16x20 feet in size. The students at this time sat on wooden benches and a single fireplace was the building's only source of heat. A teacher at Vellore School during this early period was Alexander Muir who wrote the song Maple Leaf Forever, considered by some Canada's national anthem until O Canada was officially given the title in 1975.
Our school motto is believe, achieve, succeed.
Vellore Woods P.S. was officially opened in 2002. The school has 26 classrooms, a music room and a science lab. A before and after school child–care centre, owned and operated by "LeClub" is located at Vellore Woods.
