Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brock School No. 809 (Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester)

The Brock School District was formally established in April 1894, with students coming from a part of the catchment area for Grove School. Classes were initially held in the home of Mr. Kavanagh, with Miss Kavanagh as teacher, until a school building was erected at a cost of $465, on the southwest corner of 19-2-23 west of the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Municipality of Deloraine-Winchester. It opened in June 1895 and served the community until 1947 when it was replaced with a new, fully modern structure. The school closed in June 1966 and students were bused to Deloraine School. The next year, the building was moved to Deloraine then, in 1968, to Melita. All that remains at its former site is the enamel sign that was once mounted on the school and a rock cairn commemorating it.
