Historic Sites of Manitoba: Clearwater School No. 106 (Clearwater, Municipality of Louise)

Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

The Clearwater School District was established formally in November 1880, and a school building was erected in the old village of Clearwater, on the east side of the creek, in what is now Municipality of Louise. The first teacher was William Galagher, earning a salary of $380 per year. In 1898, a two-classroom schoolhouse was built to the east of the present school building. That building, closed as of 2001, is now used for community activities. As rural schools from the surrounding countryside closed, their students came here: The Oaks School No. 412, Cypress School No. 175, Crystal River School No. 243, Mount Prospect School No. 249, and St. Lawrence School No. 646.
