Historic Sites of Manitoba: Beliveau School / College Beliveau (296 Speers Road, Winnipeg)

Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

Located in the Windsor Park area of St. Boniface, this site was purchased from the Land Assembly and Development Company (Ladco). Construction of the school, as part of the St. Boniface School Division, began in October 1956. Originally a 13-room building, students attended staggered classes at Marion School prior to its opening in early 1957. Completed at a cost of around $166,000, this French immersion facility operated as Beliveau Elementary School in its early years then converted to a junior high school. The building underwent several expansions including a nine-classroom addition in 1965 designed by local architect Etienne J. Gaboury. It is presently known as College Beliveau.
