Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Maps | Sources

Goulter School, named for local lawyer H. H. Goulter, opened in 1957 to accommodate an increased elementary student body due to the 1950s oil boom in the Virden region. It also focused on technical skills. In the late 1980s, an addition was made to provide space for a Special Education suite, music room, computer lab, and Kindergarten classroom.
