Located in the St. Boniface School Division No. 4, the school was designed by the Winnipeg architectural firm of Green Blankstein Russell and Associates. The school’s hexagonal shape is unique and is one of few such buildings in North America. Built at a cost of $680,000, the school opened for the Fall Term of 1960. It was officially opened on 15 September 1960 by Minister of Education Stewart McLean.
