Biographical history

Around 1899, a new school was built to replace Southfield School and was renamed Chase River School. Chase River School was located on the corner of Fielding and Cedar Roads and consisted of one room and employed one teacher. The school eventually expanded to three rooms. In 1944 Chase River Elementary School was closed and the students attended Harewood, Southward and Nanaimo Bay Schools. In 1945, Chase River School was destroyed by fire and a new school was rebuilt in 1950 on the corner of Cranberry Avenue and Extension Road. The new school was opened in 1951.
