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

Located in the Rural Municipality of St. Vital, now a suburb of Winnipeg, at the northeast corner of Minnetonka Street and River Road, this school was intended as a replacement for the aging Mountbatten School, though the latter remained open for several more years. The St. Vital School Division facility initially shared a Principal with Lavallee School. A fire on 28 October 1979 fire caused some $50,000 in damages.
