This Fort Garry school, now in the Pembina Trails School Division, opened for grades 1-6 in the fall of 1970. In addition to open area classrooms, the building featured a material resource room along with music and science facilities. Although the 180-student school was overcrowded within two years, the Department of Education initially rejected plans for a 12-room expansion.
