Welcome to Gilbert Plains Elementary


Welcome to Gilbert Plains Elementary School! 


Gilbert Plains, Manitoba, is a rural community approximately 20 miles West of Dauphin. Our school has an enrollment of 140 students. At Gilbert Plains Elementary, we are committed to ensuring that everyone is treated with respect and that students reach deep levels of profound learning through relevant, engaging learning experiences. I feel privileged to be a part of such a remarkable school community.  In my service as principal, I take much pride in the fact that our staff works diligently to maintain high educational standards for every child while giving each student the tools needed to be thoughtful, responsible citizens who will be ready to take their place in the world.


At Gilbert Plains Elementary, our school motto is as follows:   “We succeed at GPE!”

As you walk our halls or classrooms, reflect on observations of the school day, or speak with school staff, you will find our commitment to this motto ring true. I am very proud to be part of the team at Gilbert Plains Elementary School where we have a deep commitment for children, families, and fully engaged learning. We know that ensuring students receive a quality education in a caring environment with engaging work is a team effort, and we are grateful to have such supportive and involved parents standing behind the children we serve. As partners, please know that you are a critical part of our school community.

We want our great school to be a place where the voices of the parents and community are heard.  If you have ideas, thoughts, or concerns you’d like to share, we’d love to hear them.   Please contact me via email at cfisher@mvsd.ca or call 204-548-2822. You are always welcome to visit the school. Thank you for your support of our school!

Mr. C. Fisher
