The first elementary school in the Agrobank neighborhood was initially called the "elementary school." The school was located on the first floor of a residential building, which stood on Palmach Street, at the corner of Notarim Street.
The first class of the school graduated there in 1945, the principal of the first school was Zeev Igeret, a Jew from Romania, who worked to have them speak the Hebrew language.
Shimon Yavetz and Yaakov Mirenburg, directors of the Agrobank company, donated the field on which the school stands today. The engineer and builder was Yehuda Lolko. The school was inaugurated in 1946.
The name of the "elementary school" was changed to "Shenkar School" following the murder of Ben Zion Shenkar, chairman of the neighborhood committee and one of the two directors of the Lodzia factory, by British soldiers on Friday night, February 6-7, 1946.
For the purpose of establishing the school, Ben-Zion Shenkar, during his lifetime, initiated fundraising campaigns for merchants and industrialists with whom you were in business contact, as he did when the nearby Great Synagogue was built. Holon Local Council participated in the construction despite its small budget.
