The Manitoba government announced some positive news on Thursday, May 21 with regards to a plan for Phase Two of Restoring Safe Services. This plan includes re-opening school facilities for limited use.

Immaculate Heart of Mary School has developed a plan for the gradual re-entry of students into their classrooms during the month of June. In the development of this plan for re-entry, Immaculate Heart of Mary School’s priorities continue to focus on the academic, social emotional, spiritual and physical health of all members in our community.

For more information regarding the IHMS Re-entry Plan - June 2020 contact the School Office:

“Let us be alert and protect ourselves and one another, but especially let us remember that the
best protection from all epidemics is faith in the Lord and acts of love, for when we think about and
strive to help those around us, God Himself looks after us!”
Sr. Sofija Lebedowicz, SSMI - General Superior

Full Time Kindergarten

IHMS offers a Monday to Friday, full-day Kindergarten program. Kindergarten at IHMS provides a strong academic and social development program with a special concern for the Ukrainian culture, and as well, faith development.

Extensive research indicates full-time Kindergarten has a very positive impact on young learners.
National studies show:
- Children in all-day kindergarten have better language, social and communication skills.
- Students in full-day kindergarten are better prepared to enter Grade 1 and to be more successful in school.
Currently, full-day kindergarten exists in seven provinces and territories across Canada.
Full day kindergarten is of benefit to families in which both parents are in the workforce.

Contact the School Office to arrange a personal tour of IHMS and hear more about the wonderful programs, see the bright classrooms and meet the friendly school staff.

IHMS also offers pre-­Kindergarten programs through Immaculate Heart of Mary Lubov Nursery School located at 35 Marcie Street. This very successful program has been in operation for nearly 20 years and offers a program with a special concern for the Ukrainian culture, and as well, faith development.

  • No events
  • Annual Fundraisers


    On behalf of Immaculate Heart of Mary School and the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, thank you to all the generous supporters of the school’s Annual Fundraising Dinner. The Dinner, originally scheduled for March 14, was postposed due to the evolving global pandemic of COVID-19. With conditions as they are for the unforeseeable future, the leadership of the school made the decision to cancel the event for this year. This is a very unprecedented and extenuating circumstance. We thank all patrons, sponsors and volunteers for your understanding. For a complete listing of the donors and sponsors of the Annual Fundraising Dinner click on the image below:


    Thank you to all who were able to attend and support the Final IHMS Annual Tea. It has been one of the school’s largest community building and fund raising events for many decades.

The Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate officially opened the last Annual School Tea ... and as well, officially closed the Tea as an annual school event. Looking to the future, other opportunities for community building events and fund raisers will be planned.
