Keith Bennett (circa 1970)


Keith Bennett, the second headmaster at the Alberta school (1970-75), is the focus of our fourth “personalities” feature. Keith began his career at St. John’s in the early days of the part-time school in Manitoba, and is considered one of the founding members of the St. John’s schools. He taught at the Manitoba school until the late 1960’s, and in 1970 became the headmaster in Alberta.

Many students and staff will remember Keith for his talent and love of music. “Boys who had Keith as their teacher after lunch knew if they could get him sitting at the piano in the lunch break, they’d get a free period to get caught up on homework.” (Quote from our history book)
