Bloomfield Elementary School opened in September 1970. For the first five years of operation, students in Grades 1 to 8 attended Bloomfield. In the fall of 1975, Grades 7 and 8 students started attending the newly constructed Hernewood Junior High School.
The French Immersion program was introduced at Bloomfield Elementary in September 1978. We remain a dual-track school with 55% of our student population enrolled in the Immersion program during the 1997-98 school year.
In December 1997, air-quality testing showed high levels of fungi and mold. For the health and safety of our students, the Western School Board of P.E.I. decided to move our students to O'Leary Elementary in the neighbouring community of O'Leary. New working relationships were formed with our gracious hosts in O'Leary Elementary while repairs to our school were being carried out. School staffs, parents, students and Board officials working together made the best of a very unfortunate situation and we were able to move back into our renovated building during August 1997 in time for the fall opening. Some pictures of the renovation process are available on this homepage.
