Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Maps | Sources

Known initially as Assiniboine School, it was renamed David Livingstone School in early September 1921, shortly before it was opened officially on 14 September. On 8 October 1959, the school’s roof collapsed under the weight of some 15 inches of snow. There were no injuries associated with the accident, which occurred on a holiday. The building was later demolished.
