In 1979, after concerted lobby efforts by parents and community members, the Board of Education for Saskatoon Catholic Schools (now known as Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools) agreed to pilot a partial immersion (bilingual) Ukrainian language program, enriched with cultural elements and religious education. This occurred at St. Goretti School.  The school was a dual-track set up whereby there was a regular K – Gr. 8 English stream AND the Ukrainian Bilingual stream housed in the same school.

In the Fall of 2002 the Ukrainian program moved to Holy Family School – where it was again housed with a regular K – Gr. 8 English stream.  In 2006 a long-awaited dream of the broader Ukrainian community was realized when the Ukrainian program got its own school.  This was due mainly to demographics & decreasing enrolment in the English stream at the time at the new host school.  The Ukrainian program now became its own school, named after a long-time friend and supporter, the late Bishop Emeritus Basil Filevich.
