Built in the St. Boniface School Division in 1974-1975, students and staff were hosted in Van Belleghem School during this school’s construction. It opened in the fall term of 1975 and is now an elementary school in the Louis Riel School Division. A memorial along the west side of the school commemorates former teacher Lorna Alice McIntosh Lacombe (1948-2004) and students Tyler James Monias (1987-2000) and Aleesha Yasmeen Al-Atiya (1996-2007).
