Historic Sites of Manitoba: Transcona Collegiate Institute (1305 Winona Street, Winnipeg)

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

Built in 1960-1961 for the Transcona-Springfield School Division, this school was based on designs of the Winnipeg architectural firm of Waisman Ross & Associates. This site, originally going by the temporary name of “New West End High School,” replaced the former location of the Transcona Collegiate Institute off Day Street and would carry the name going forward. The same firm also designed a six-room expansion built in 1962. The school has since received a large expansion to the north and west sides.
