Location:
Evergreen School Division is located in the Interlake region of Manitoba, 80 kilometres north of Winnipeg. It is a safe, rural school division that hugs the western shore of Lake Winnipeg, the 11th largest freshwater lake in the world! Our division is known for the natural beauty of its beaches and forested areas. We have schools in the communities of Arborg, Gimli, Riverton and Winnipeg Beach.

In the summer we enjoy our beaches, swimming in Lake Winnipeg, boating, fishing, camping, baseball, cycling and golf. Hecla Island Park is part of our division and has the best golf course in Manitoba. In winter we stay active by curling, skating, playing hockey, ice-fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, in addition to a range of indoor sports and activities. At Evergreen School Division, we love playing in the snow!
