This Winnipeg school is named in commemoration of Sister Geraldine MacNamara. Following site preparation early in 1988, construction of the two-storey, 50,000-square-foot facility began during the summer of that year. The Winnipeg School Division facility opened its doors to students in Kindergarten to grade six in October 1989, with an initial enrollment of around 500.
