Administered by Catholic educators, St. Mary’s School was located in downtown Winnipeg where the Delta Hotel stands today at St. Mary Avenue and Hargrave Street, one block east of Alexandra School. Architect Samuel Hooper supplied the design. Completed in 1904, the school closed in 1968. A fire on 28 November 1969 sealed its fate and the building was demolished in 1971.
Noteworthy alumni of St. Mary’s School include grain merchant William Richard Bawlf and politician Francis Laurence “Bud” Jobin.
