  • Notes 
    • Margaret Avenue School was built in 1894 and Miss Ada Cairnes was the first principal. She was a well known painter in Kitchener as well: many pieces of her painted chinaware remain and she did a portrait of Lord Kitchener which hangs outside the council chambers at Kitchener City Hall. Margaret Avenue school was Kitchener's fourth school building following Central/Suddaby, Agnes Street and Courtland.
