Schools

Fourth Annual Carberry Heritage Festival

This page is devoted to various in-depth stories I have written about Winnipeg’s grand old schools which were built in the first half of the 20th century. I include schools outside of Winnipeg and various posts about education as well.

    Hi Reid, I live in a former one-room school outside of Winnipeg, Rossmere School in Springfield. It is on the Manitoba Historical Society webpage. There is very little info about this school that I can find, including anything from the Archives in Springfield and the Springfield History Book. Have yet to locate and photos of when it was a school. Thanks for your blog; I find it quite fascinating.

    • Happy you found my blog. I don’t have any further info on Rossmere School other than what the MHS has found. My personal experiences going to a one-room school are on the Schools page under Hebron School.

  2. Hi Reid ; I bought the old Whytewold Beach school no.1386 class 92, I can’t seem to find any information on this school ,I was wondering if you know anything about this school?

    • Hi Ron, I searched the Manitoba Historical Society site for your old school but found very little. The MHS usually has a plethora of info and pics about old schools but Whytewold is an exception. It lists a couple of the teachers but little else. Thanks for reading my blog. Reid
