1960: Early 1960's - Winfield Elementary School—Third Addition

The third addition to the school was the gymnasium that was built on the west of the addition of 1946.

For a few years after Wood Lake Elementary was built in 1965, students only went as far as grade four at Winfield and then they went to Wood Lake for grades five to seven. Later the school changed to include kindergarten to grade seven. Eventually, increases in enrolment made it necessary to bring three portable classrooms on the school grounds.
