Elk Island Catholic Schools (EICS) and Strathcona County have created an amazing recreational opportunity for the entire community through a gymnasium expansion in one of the oldest schools in the community. 

Built in 1967, École Père Kenneth Kearns is currently operating as a Catholic French Immersion School serving 230 Kindergarten to Grade 4 students and 18 preschool students.  Funding was provided in 2019 by Alberta Education to bring the facility up to health and safety standards and to modernize the school to improve program delivery.

Elk Island Catholic Schools invested a total of $10.4 million towards the modernization of École Père Kenneth Kearns, located at 8 Sandpiper Drive, Sherwood Park. Strathcona County contributed $2.8 million and expanded the gymnasium by 308 metres² to regulation size. Construction began in summer, 2019 and was completed in April of 2021.
