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

Around the time Lord Roberts School was built, Winnipeg was booming, and was soon to be the third-largest city in Canada. It would remain so until the 1920s. The burgeoning population moved outward from the city centre, and Fort Rouge grew to house a large working- and middle-class demographic. The nearby CNR rail yards and shops were employer to many of the residents. [1]

An influx of people required new services, and as there was only one four-roomed wooden schoolhouse built in 1908 to serve the neighbourhood (Riverview School), a site was purchased in early 1910 at a cost of $22,200. Lord Roberts School was erected the same year facing east on Daly Street (formerly John Street), bounded by Rathgar Avenue on the north and Beresford Avenue on the south. The cornerstone of the new school was laid by Dr. T. G. Hamilton of the Winnipeg School Board. [2, 3, 4]

Designed by Winnipeg school architect J. B. Mitchell, and named after highly decorated British Field Marshall, Lord Frederick Sleigh Roberts (1832-1914), the fireproof, solid grey brick, three-storey building contained 16 classrooms, two manual training rooms, a principal’s office, medical inspection room, and staff and student’s rest rooms. The school was built to accommodate 700 pupils. The total cost of its construction in 1910 came in at $90,300 and included heating, ventilation, and furniture. [3]

Lord Roberts School No. 1 opened in January 1911 with S. A. Campbell as Principal and five teachers. Enrolment was 240 pupils at that time. By 1922 there were 1,039 students, and 26 teachers. [5] Building 1 had hardwood floors that creaked when walked on. The windows were tall and let a lot of light in to a large room at the top of the stairs leading into the school. The space provided a perfect room for school assemblies. Classrooms led off of hallways at the sides of the room. A piano and potted ferns provided an air of graciousness against the dark wood framed classrooms. The science room contained stuffed birds and animals. Orange-yellow painted wooden desks with black metal grills had inkwells containing small glass holders which were filled each morning. Students used stick pens with metal nibs to practise alphabet and penmanship skills on lined foolscap paper. [15]

As the school population continued to grow, five teachers and classes were transferred to Riverview School in January 1919. The school board passed the building of another structure on the Lord Roberts grounds the same year, which eventually cost $69,500. [6]

Lord Roberts School No. 2 opened in April 1920, behind the larger school, resulting in eight classrooms and an auditorium complete with stage. The longest wing ran west along Beresford Avenue, with the Auditorium central and to the right of the main entrance. A smaller north wing with three classrooms and washroom facilities came off of and behind the Auditorium and ran behind Building 1, with playground space in between the two schools. Halls connected the wings of the one-storey building. The two buildings were known by the students as the “big” school and “little” school. In 1923, an additional two-storey, eight-classroom brick Annex was added to Building 2. That addition ran behind Building 1 and was adjoined to the north wing looking toward Rathgar. By 1929, the staff numbered 34 and enrollment was 1,438. Riverview School was again enlarged to take the overflow. [5, 6, 14, 15]

The School Board decided to introduce a new concept into the school, and in September 1920 Lord Roberts Junior High School was organized with six teachers on the first staff. By 1929, 481 students were enrolled in Junior High. Lord Roberts School had variously ended at Grade 9, then 7, and now at 6 through the years. Students attending in the earlier years typically attended Kelvin High School after elementary school. Students from 1955 on attended Churchill High School after it was built. [5, 15]

P. G. Padwick, a dedicated teacher conducted the Lord Roberts Orchestra which was Winnipeg’s first school orchestra, and well known in its day. Winnipeg Youth Orchestra (or Manitoba School’s Orchestra) was founded by Padwick in 1923 for young musicians of 8-18 years and the music was broadcast on Saturday mornings in 1927 as instruction for students around the province of Manitoba. In 1922 that teacher’s gifts also extended to teaching a Wednesday night gymnasium club which averaged 75 boys in attendance. [6, 7, 8, 17]

Fred Tipping, a manual training instructor held a Thursday night radio class attended by 35 boys. The boys constructed a radio and then began making sets for themselves. A May Day Festival was begun in 1920 by Miss E. Tagg. Operettas and plays were produced throughout the years, and money raised in one instance was used to purchase two gramophones and a selection of records. Miss Fern Grant directed a Lord Roberts music class who became winners of the Daniel McIntyre trophy in 1935 at the Winnipeg Music Festival. Many Lord Roberts classes sang and attended the prestigious Festival over the years. Tunics and white blouses were the dress for girls at that event, while boys wore white shirts and dark trousers. [6, 9, 15, 17]

Al Vickery, in a Winnipeg Free Press article entitled “Lord Roberts remembered”, spent from 1929 to 1931 at the school, and mentions teachers Misses McKnight, Brady, Tagg, Harris, Bell, McConnell, Moffatt, Ferrier, Grant, Miller, Kyle, the Neithercut sisters – Mary and Florence, Fred Tipping, P. G. Padwick, Bob Wellwood, and Johnny Menzies. [12]

Lord Roberts soccer teams became well known in Winnipeg school sports. Winter sports and then track and field events were held on the large field, along with baseball games in the warm months. One championship softball team became a powerhouse who went on to the city championship competing against the best provincial teams at Osborne Stadium in 1947. However, they wound up losing 6-4 in the finals, a loss that still bothers a former alumnus today. [15, 16]

A large contingent of over one thousand young men and women from Lord Roberts School served in the Second World War in various armed services. There were many casualties. During the war years at Lord Roberts some young boys served in the Cadet Corps. The program was Canada-wide and included young men from grades 8 to 12. They attended Wasagaming Military Training camp conducted by the Lord Strathcona Horse, and were either conscripted or went voluntarily into active duty when they reached age 18. The Corps. would take live ammunition training at Fort Osborne Barracks where they practised with 22-caliber rifles on the basement ranges. [13, 15]

At the start of the war, while the country was coming out of the Great Depression, a milk program was in place for students in order to provide nourishment which many could not otherwise afford. It carried on into the 1950s. A Kindergarten class began in 1944 for the first time at the school in Building 2, and many children attended from the 1950s to the present. At the time children spent nap-time on small cotton mats provided. Nursery classes were added in 1970. [6, 13, 15, 20]

In the early years students from the neighbourhood walked to school. The School Patrol system was in place in the 1950s, and busy streets around the school were guarded by eager young people in white leather Sam Browne belts. [15]

In 1955 Miss Frances Port directed the Lord Roberts Orchestra’s final performance when the School Board removed music instruction from the school curriculum. The concert marked Jack Scurfield’s departure as Principal to Churchill High School where he assumed responsibilities as that school’s administrative head. [11]

In the 1930s cookery was not offered at the school, but girls were taught sewing in the classroom where they made aprons, pyjamas or nighties by hand. As the school grew, female students attending Lord Roberts Grade 7 classes in 1958-1959 took Home Economics classes at Earl Grey School which had facilities for cookery and sewing instruction. In the 1930s males were taught building techniques in Shops classes at Lord Roberts in the Lower Level facilities. Among other shops teachers, Mr. Fonseca taught woodworking, and Mr. Potter taught sheet metal shops. [13, 15, 22]

Eventually use of Building 1 by many generations of students, and reports of cracks, sagging floors away from the walls, and slow sinking of the foundation, as well as a floor not testable for fear of collapse was verified by a private consultant hired by the School Board. Responding to the consultant’s 1966 report, a Board decision was made not to repair but rather replace the old buildings. A couple of years later, the Public Schools Finance Board approved plans for a new building, and it was built in 1969 in the opposite direction, west of where the old buildings stood at the end of the former playground area. The official laying of the cornerstone for the new school was 14 November 1969 by Trustee W. W. Jenkins, Chairman of the Winnipeg School Board’s Building and Policy Committee. [6, 15, 18]

The newest Lord Roberts School is located at 665 Beresford Avenue and is bounded by that street on the South and Rathgar Avenue on the North with a lane linking the two. Built at a cost of $1,300,000, the school was designed to accommodate 970 students, and is 60,100 square feet. It was officially opened on 21 May 1970. About 780 students moved during the first week of March 1970 into the new structure. Later that year, both of the old schools were demolished, and the land on which they stood forms the end of the current playing field which now ends at Daly Street. [6, 15, 19]

The newer school structure is a one-storey building, consisting of three pre-kindergarten classrooms, 16 regular classrooms, three large-group, open area instructional spaces, one instructional materials centre (library), one multipurpose room, two gymnasiums, a therapy room, administration and related auxiliary rooms and additional basement facilities. An elevator with access to the lower level gymnasium and additional spaces is currently being constructed. Two colourful tile mosaics from the original school were saved, and one was placed at the front entrance of the new school along with the original limestone school name tablet which sat above the old front entrance. The other mosaic brightens the administrative office. Framed Second World War service listings are now mounted inside the front entrance. The listing is somewhat incomplete in that women who served were not always added at the time. [6, 15, 20]

Fifteen Special Needs students from the Ellen Douglass School were integrated in the Fall of 1978 after the School Board approved the proposal. At the time, two teachers accompanied students as support staff. The following year the total Ellen Douglass staff was relocated in order that there was no reduction in support services. The transition complete, the two schools are fully amalgamated. The integrated program was known as the Ellen Douglass Program, and is now called Family Advocates for Special Needs Students. Structural changes to Lord Roberts had to be made to accommodate the new students, and some washrooms were redesigned. A bus loading ramp along the north side of the school was added, and ramping of entrances and some other minor alterations were made. [10, 20, 21]
