Khalsa School - our history

Khalsa School

Over 30 years ago, Bhai Sahib Jeevan Singh Ji had a vision. His vision was that there be an educational institution where children could go to learn, to flourish and to practice Sikhi freely. With Guru Sahib’s blessing and the support of the local Sikh community, the first Khalsa School was opened in September 1986 on Fraser Street. The first school had 100 students. As the Sikh community moved out towards Surrey from Vancouver, the calls for a campus in Surrey increased. In September 1992, the sangat’s ardaas was answered and Khalsa School Newton campus was opened. Today, this campus houses 1366 Kindergarten to Grade 7 students. As our popularity grew, Khalsa School needed more space. In 2008, the Old Yale Road campus was built. It currently has 930 students. But Khalsa School had even bigger plans for the site. History was made once again in 2014 when the first secondary school dedicated to instilling Sikh core values and academic excellence was opened on the Old Yale Road location. Khalsa Secondary School is proud to be the place where over 300 students choose to complete their high school careers. Khlasa School believes in the development of an inclusive learning environment and is always looking to offer new experiences to its student body. In this spirit Khalsa School Mission was opened in 2015 as Outdoor Education focused campus.

Thanks to Bhai Sahib Jeevan Singh Ji’s vision Sikh independent schools are the norm in today’s BC educational sphere. It is our ardaas that parents, students, and our community continue to work together to make this institution the best it can be.
