Built during the spring and summer of 1965 to serve the growing needs of the Westwood area, this St. James - Assiniboia School Division school, like the street on which it is located, commemorates local municipal official Joseph Henry Sansome. Designed by architect John M. Venables of the firm of Pratt, Lindgren and Associates, the building was constructed by the Arlington Builders at a cost of $534,016. It opened for classes in November 1965 and an official opening ceremony, attended by Premier Duff Roblin, occurred on 19 May 1966. Initially serving junior high grades, the facility was later converted into an elementary school.
