Winnipeg's Technical-Vocational High School, known as Tec-Voc, is in all likelihood Manitoba's most magnificent school building. The clarity of the design, the streamlined shapes and decorative elements combine Art Deco and Art Modern in a vivacious visual feast.
Carved in stone on the entrance tower are the words that seem to drive the development of the school, "Knowledge without practice makes but half an artist."
Technical-Vocational High School was opened in 1951 by Lieutenant-Governor Hon. R. F. McWilliams. Its intention was to provide Manitoba students with the skills they needed of applied knowledge and academic study to meet the changing technologies of the post-war world. It offers a large range of courses of study from aerospace to electronics to culinary arts.
