Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ferley School No. 1812 (Ukraina, RM of Mossey River)

The Ferley School District was established in December 1915, probably named for recently elected provincial politican Taras Ferley, and a one-room schoolhouse operated in the village of Ukraina (SE6-29-20W) in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Dauphin Ochre School Division.

Among the teachers of Ferley School were Mrs. Valeria Zale (1954-1955), Nestor Wasyluk (1955-1957), and Peter Rudy (1957-1961).
