More Information

This school was built for Norwood School Division to serve English-speaking children in the district. It originally had eight classrooms with an auditorium that doubled as a classroom. It stands one storey, with two gyms anchoring and balancing the design along the length of the site. The interior layout has not changed much but many alterations have been made. The exterior was partially redone, possibly in 1983. The original face is the plainer mid-brown brick at the top and bottom of the walls.
