Historic Sites of Manitoba: Borshaw School No. 1230 (Municipality of Ethelbert)

The Borshaw School District was established in April 1903 and, within the next year or so, a wood frame school building was constructed at NW27-28-22W in what is now the Municipality of Ethelbert. It operated until around 1967. Its catchment area became part of the Duck Mountain School Division. The former schoolhouse was modified and is used for storage at the site.

Among the teachers of Borshaw School between 1956 and 1963 were M. Burym, Mr. Smith, A. Ezowski, V. Seniuk, and L. Romanetz.
