Opened in 1973 in the Seven Oaks School Division, the concrete, steel frame, and masonry school was built on designs of the Winnipeg architectural firm of Ward, Macdonald, Cockburn, McLeod, and McFeetors. The school was named for the then-recently deceased community activist Neville Meldrum Elwick and his wife Ursula Stella Peterman (c1914-1967).
