Located at the south corner of Lumber Avenue and Fourth Street Southwest in Steinbach, the Steinbach Collegiate Institute was designed by the architectural firm of Ward and Macdonald and built by Taubensee Construction Limited. A sod-turning ceremony was held on 9 June 1961 and the school was completed in less than a year at a cost of around $500,000. The structure’s initial configuration had 34 rooms and replaced previous collegiate grade capacity at Steinbach Collegiate / Steinbach School No. 2. It was dedicated by Reverend H. P. Friesen and was officially unveiled on 8 March 1962 by Premier Duff Roblin and Education Minister Stewart McLean. Other dignitaries included Mayor L. A. Barkman, Hanover School Division Chairman Seb. B. Rieger, architect Gerry Macdonald along with MLAs and school officials. The cornerstone, containing copies of the Winnipeg Free Press, Steinbach Carillon News, Steinbach Post, a 1961 Steinbach Collegiate yearbook, inaugural staff roster, photos of the school, along with the official program, was set and sealed during the ceremony. The school was expanded with a eight more rooms in 1967. The facility became the Steinbach Junior High School in the fall of 1972, at which time collegiate grades were transferred to the new Steinbach Regional Secondary School. The school was renamed as Stonybrook Middle School in September 2012.
