Located in Transcona, this school was built in 1956 at a cost of $330,000 following the approval of local voters with a margin of 1,725 to 855. The 18-room collegiate included an auditorium which could be converted into a further four classrooms. The site was home to the Transcona Collegiate Institute prior to its relocating to new premises off Winona Street, after which it became the Transcona Junior High School. The site was soon named after Arthur Day, though before long the Arthur Day Junior High School too relocated to new home on Whitehall Boulevard in 1969, carrying with it the name. The building then became home to the Central North Upgrading Centre (1970-1977) renamed in May 1977 as the Park Circle Secondary School (PCSS). Named by the school’s students for the nearby Park Circle, PCSS closed in 2000. Since 2002, the building has been the home of Calvin Christian Collegiate.
