Historic Sites of Manitoba: Education Point School No. 327 (RM of Wallace-Woodworth)
The Education Point School District was formally established in October 1884, and a wood frame schoolhouse featuring separate entrance doors for girls and boys operated at SW14-11-23W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Wallace-Woodworth. The district was dissolved in January 1968. The former school building was destroyed in a suspected arson fire in late 2012 or early 2013. A fieldstone monument, dedicated on 5 July 1981, remains to commemorate it.
Among the teachers of Education Point School were Gilda Marion Menzies and Wilma Tully.
