The two-storey concrete-block O’Kelly School building on Canadian Forces Base Shilo, in the Municipality of North Cypress-Langford, was opened in Fall 1957. Used for Kindergarten to grade 8 classes and Kindergarten to grade 4 French-immersion classes, it was originally administered by the Department of National Defense. In 1994, its operation was taken over by the Brandon School Division.
