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

Constructed in 1955 as a single-storey structure and named for renowned Canadian physician William Osler (1849-1919), in 1957 the original ten classrooms and gymnasium were expanded to include four more classrooms. The school closed in June 1991 and the remaining students went to J. B. Mitchell School or Brock Corydon School. The building continued to be used for educational programs by the Winnipeg School Division. The school was officially reopened as a French-only facility on 4 October 2016.
