Historic Sites of Manitoba: John Henderson Junior High School (930 Brazier Street, Winnipeg)
Built as a replacement to the Melrose Junior High School (sold by the East Kildonan School District to the River East School Division), a sod-turning ceremony was held in mid-September 1961. In attendance was School Board Chairman L. A. McMahon, Superintendent L. W. Wiley, Mrs. A. A. Anderson, Jim Searle, A. R. McEwan, A. B. Ingliss, and Secretary-Treasurer G. F. Saunders. The school commemorates farmer and municipal official John Henderson. It opened to students in the spring of 1962 and was officially opened by Henderson’s daughter Mary in early October 1962. Expansions have since been made to the north and south ends of the original structure.
