Historic Sites of Manitoba: Boyle School No. 167 (RM of Silver Creek)

The Boyle School District was organized formally in March 1884 and a school building was erected at the southeast corner of SW20-19-26W in the Rural Municipality of Silver Creek. In 1889, the schoolhouse was moved to SW17-19-26W. It was destroyed by fire around 1894. A replacement was constructed at the same site and it operated until 1951 when it was sold and moved to the Lansburne area for use as a private home. The new school opened in the fall of that year. Within eight years, however, declining student enrollment necessitated its permanent closure, in August 1959. The remaining students were transported to Consolidated School No. 525. The former school building was sold. The building is no longer present at the site but a monument, unveiled on 24 May 1969, commemorates it.

The teachers of Boyle School included John Ross (1887), Miss Sharman, Miss Huehnichen, S. J. Myers (1906), Florence Nicholson, S. F. McGuire, Miss M. J.
