Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fort Whyte School No. 2198 (McGillivray Boulevard, Winnipeg)

Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

Fort Whyte School was situated along McGillivray Boulevard, in what eventually became the Fort Whyte suburb of Winnipeg. When it opened in May 1929, its two classrooms hosted grades 1 to 11. The school closed in June 1972 due to declining enrollment and its remaining students were bused to schools in Charleswood or Tuxedo. The building was used intermittently until it was demolished in the spring of 2005.
