Historic Sites of Manitoba: Corrall School No. 1382 (RM of Springfield)

The Corrall School District was organized formally in March 1906 but a school did not open until November 1911, in a wood frame building at SW35-11-8E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. It was later replaced and the original school was sold to a local Hutterite colony. In 1968, the school closed and the building was renovated into a private residence.

Some of the teachers who taught at Corrall School included Mildred Carter, Miss Holmes, Edward Bathgate, Minnie McCrea, Mrs. Hammond, Miss McCleod, Winona Hockley, Mr. Lytton, Ruby Black, Maybelle Fowler, Margaret McCarter, Frances Kury, Stephanie Prucyk, and Paul Moros.
