1970: 1970 - Oyama School Grades Reduced

In 1970, Oyama School went from kindergarten to grade three only. Grades five to seven attended Wood Lake Elementary School. The school grounds were equipped with underground sprinklers, sod, and an adventure playground. The old ‘girls’ room in the basement was renovated and converted to the new kindergarten classroom in 1974.
