Historic Sites of Manitoba: Braddock School No. 2136 (RM of Yellowhead)

The Braddock School District was organized formally in July 1925, and a school building operated on the northeast quarter of 30-18-22 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead. It closed in 1962 and was moved a half kilometer northwest to its present site. A commemorative monument has been erected on the former school grounds while the former schoolhouse stood vacant at N50.57891, W100.48965 at the time of a July 2012 site visit.

Among the teachers of Braddock School were Zelma Peden (1926-1927), Henry F. Hyson (1928), Karl Eric Chambers (1928), Elizabeth Stevenson (1928-1929), John Karasivich (1930), Stephanie Kepron (1930-1931), Emily Mildred Surby (1932-1934), William Raginski (1934-1935), Ann Bosiak (1935-1937), Nicholas Danyluk (1937-1940), Nicholas Pereski (1940-1941), Annie Luhovey Polos (1943-1944), Nicholas Rebenchuk (1945-1946), Margaret Kiez (1946-1947), Marie Marjorie Zatylny (1947-1948), Anne B.
