Constable Neil Bruce Middle School (CNB) is an important part of our community named for Neil Bruce, who was an Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Officer. Neil Bruce, a native of New Brunswick, joined the RCMP in 1959. Constable Neil Bruce was fatally wounded on the morning of April 10th, 1965, while attempting to rescue a young woman who was being unlawfully confined in a cabin in Powers Creek in West Kelowna, B.C.. He died in the Kelowna General Hospital on April 14th, 1965. Constable Neil Bruce was 26 years old. He left behind his wife Sandra, his son Donald and his daughter Barbara.
CNB has served the community for 18 years and opened as a Gr. 7-9 school in January 2000. September 2018 will be the first year CNB will welcome students from Gr. 6-8, as we moved through a Westside grade reconfiguration process in the Spring of 2018. CNB has five feeder elementary schools: Chief Tomat Elem., Hudson Rd. Elem., Rose Valley Elem., Shannon Lake Elem., and Mar Jok Elem..
