About Us

Victory School is an elementary school of about 250 children in Kindergarten to Grade 5 located in West Kildonan.

Victory School was built after World War I and was named for the end of the Great War. A by-law dated July 19th, 1919 was passed by the Board in approval of the building of a new school. A public meeting was held on the grounds of Centennial School on July 28th, 1919 and it approved the actions of the Board. The existing schools, Centennial and Governor Semple were overcrowded and the board voted to build a temporary one room school at Jefferson and Andrews, on rented land, and named it Victory School. In May of 1920 tenders were opened for the new Victory School and contractors were hired. The school was officially opened at a reception hosted by the Board on November 26th, 1920. The temporary school was moved to Margaret Avenue on a site that had been obtained from the estate of a Mr. Templeton. Victory School has been welcoming students since that time and has had many additions of classrooms and renovations over time.
