The Kelsey Community School building was built in three stages: ten classrooms in 1958, eight classrooms in 1961 and an adjoining wing in 1972 which included administrative offices, staff work areas, a large gymnasium, a multi-purpose room, kindergarten areas, seminar rooms, a science room (now the staff room), an art room, a resource centre with a reading pit and a ten classroom count open area. In 1990 the open area was renovated to seven closed classrooms, an A.V. storage facility and expanded library facility.
