Historic Sites of Manitoba: Chmelnycki School No. 1494 (RM of Rossburn)

The Chmelnycki School District was established in March 1909 and a one-room schoolhouse opened at NW28-21-24W in the Rural Municipality of Rossburn. The building was moved to SE34-21-24W in 1929. It was replaced by a new structure in 1951. The school closed in 1964 and the district was dissolved the following year. Its area became part of the Rossburn Consolidated School District and later the Pelly Trail School Division. No vestige of the former school remains at the site.

The teachers of Chmelnycki School were Michael Nowosad (1910), Elias Mykichuk, John Hykaway, Metro Wowk, Jacob Matiowsky, Mr. Cozoris, Ivan Storozuk, Basil Trakalo, Nick Nazarish, Miss Tommick, Dorothy Bugera, Ivan Storozuk, Lillian Gregorash, Paul Fostershank, Nick Yarish, Peter Yaskiw, Peter Cherkas, Joe Borody, Nick Odaisky, Marie Mychasiw, Allan Wagner, Theresa Michalchuk, Maria Michalchuk, Eugenia Pawluk, Alex Sabeski, Mrs. Stan Malchuk, Vi Matiowsky, Mike Dunits, Nick Kalyniuk, and Miss M.
