Dr Rita Cox - Kina Minagok Public School (GR. JK-08)
We work hard, we work smart, we work together!
Dr. Rita Cox – Kina Minagok Public School is an inner-city school serving a diverse student population over 700 students. The school, formerly named Queen Victoria Public School, was founded in Parkdale in 1887.
The current school building was built in 1999, and the decision was made to rename the school in 2022, following community consultation and recommendations made by a School Naming Committee. The school was named for the revered community librarian and veteran advocate for children’s literacy, Dr. Rita Cox. Kina Minagok is an Indigenous phrase that translates to "all grows well together" and signifies the school and community’s role in nurturing the growth of students.
