Winston Knoll is a Regina Public School’s newest high school facility and has many attractive features. Architecturally it features the façade of Central Collegiate. Among these is a POD system, in which each college section has a computer lab, science lab and classrooms. The college system is based on a team concept designed to: integrate curriculum, allow for multi-disciplinary instruction, consolidate students and teachers into small groups, and provide scheduling flexibility for students and staff.
Partnership with Campus Regina:
Campus Regina Public provides high school students (Grades 11 and 12) from across the division the opportunity to enroll in specialty two credit courses, and dual university courses. Each course is industry supported and features approved training that may not be available in their home school. Students will engage in learning opportunities with others who share their passion for a specialty field of study which better supports their learning as they prepare for the transition to post-secondary studies and the workplace. This opportunity is open to all high schools in Regina Public Schools.
Winston Knoll Collegiate officially opened in September of 1996. Winston Knoll was born in rural Saskatchewan, near Yorkton and graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1949 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree and received his Bachelor of Arts (with Distinction) from the University of Regina in 1969. Prior to joining the staff of the Regina Public School Division, he was employed by General Equipment Limited for 11 years, working in the areas of accounting, budgeting, purchasing and finance. In September 1961, Mr. Knoll was appointed Assistant to the Secretary-Treasurer for the Regina Collegiate Institute Board. In August 1962, he advanced to the position of Secretary-Treasurer. Upon amalgamation of the public and collegiate institute boards in January 1966, he assumed duties as Secretary-Treasurer for the newly formed Board of Education of the Regina School Division No. 4 of Saskatchewan.
During his 32 years of service, Mr. Knoll was a member of the Chartered Institute of Secretaries, Saskatchewan Association of School Business Officials and the Association of School Business Officials International. Over the years, Mr. Knoll distinguished himself as an exemplary administrator, committed to total quality performance. His wise counsel resulted in the sound financial management of the Regina public school system. He was held in high esteem by members of both the educational and business community, and was a loyal advocate of public education in Saskatchewan.
