Welcome to Tomsett

Since September 8, 1959, Tomsett Elementary has been proudly serving the families of our community.  Our unassuming school, has for many years been in an area of Richmond that was relatively quiet – despite being so close to Highway 99.  However, during the last decade, our neighbourhood, along with this sector of the city, has seen unprecedented growth.  The development of local businesses, coupled with multiple family dwellings, has changed the area significantly.  This said, Tomsett has retained a “small school feel.”  Members of our community including our students and staff are kind, thoughtful, and conscientious.  For many, our school is an extension of their family.  If you are new to our community, we look forward to meeting and working with you and your children.
