Historic Sites of Manitoba: Earl Grey School No. 1527 (RM of St. Andrews)

The Earl Grey School District was organized formally in April 1910 and a school building operated on the southwest quarter of 36-13-3 east of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews. It closed around 1967 as jurisdiction for the area became the responsibility of the Lord Selkirk School Division. The former school building was renovated into a private residence.

Among the teachers of Earl Grey School were Ernest Harvey Reid (late 1920s) and Audrey Linklater (1932-1934).
