Historic Sites of Manitoba: Dunstan School No. 379 (Municipality of Prairie View)

The Dunstan School District was organized formally in March 1885 and a one-room school building operated at this location in what is now the Municipality of Prairie View from 1905 to 1917, when it was consolidated with the Foxwarren Consolidated School No. 525. The building is no longer at the site but a monument commemorates it.

The teachers of Dunstan School included Fanny Graham, Miss Hill, Mr. Anderson, Thomas Leese, Miss Huggins, Edgar H. Murphy, Edward Hayes, Mr. McMillan, T. W. Ebbern, D. V. Yorke, Florence “Flossie” Dunfield, Florence Nicholson, Nellie McLaren, Isabella Grant, Mary Graham, Kathleen L. Medcalf, Janet Brown, and Gwendoline Elliot.
