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

Designed by Winnipeg school architect J. B. Mitchell, the cornerstone of John M. King School was laid at a ceremony on 28 July 1905 attended by school trustee James Scroggie, Colin H. Campbell, William Patrick, and Thomas Hart. Constructed at a cost of $45,500 by the firm of Smith and Sharpe, the three-storey brick and stone building had ten classrooms, an assembly hall, and a full basement. Exterior doors to the basement permitted early-arriving students to enter the building during the cold of winter, rather than wait outside. Its name commemorated cleric John Mark King and a portrait of King, painted by noted artist Victor Long, was unveiled at a ceremony in the assembly hall on 11 January 1907 attended by Rev. Charles W. Gordon, 550 students, teachers, parents, and school board officials.

The building was replaced by the present structure that stands just north of the former site, along Agnes Street, and the old building was demolished between July and August 1964.

Among the noteworthy former students of John M. King School were Ronald Turner, Lorne Elliott, Frankie Battaglia, Leslie Ham, Orville Knight, Ian McIntosh, Rev. Arnold Wilkinson, Rev. Maurice Wilkinson, Dr. Fred Abbott, Dr. Clifford Abbott, Dr. J. O’Keefe, Glen Pierce, Cecil Lyon, and Dick Flower.
