This former high school at Brooklands opened in 1961. In 1972, it was converted into a junior high school and senior students were bused to St. James Collegiate or Sturgeon Creek Regional Secondary School. In the 1980s, the building was leased by the St. James - Assiniboia School Division to the Red River Community College and from 1994 to 2004 to the Keystone Christian School. Around 2012, the building was renovated and is now used as a Punjabi cultural centre.
