Dates of existence


Prince of Wales Fairbridge Farm School was part of a philanthropic scheme aimed at strengthening the British Empire and improving the condition of underprivileged British children, an idea conceived by Kingsley Fairbridge. The plan was to resettle selected British children in overseas dominions. The Prince of Wales school opened in 1935 near Duncan, B.C. Over 300 children passed through Prince of Wales Fairbridge Farm school in its first ten years of operation. The estate was eventually sold in the early 1950s.
