Historic Sites of Manitoba: Gull Lake School No. 2269 (RM of St. Clements)

The Gull Lake School District was established formally in June 1936 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE25-16-7E in the Rural Municipality of St. Clements. The school closed in 1966 and the district was dissolved in 1968, its catchment area becoming part of the Agassiz School Division. The former school building was sold at auction and used as a private residence. It was later destroyed by fire and another residence was built on its foundation.

The teachers of Gull Lake School were David Alexander Wilson Brown (1936-1937, 1938-1939), Cleta Mildred Van Norman (1937-1938), Margaret Anne Parker (1939-1940), Margaret Anne Ursel (1940-1941, 1942-1943), Marie C. Reckseidler (1941-1942), Anne Eleanor Kowalchuk (1943-1944), Edna G. Caryk (1944-1945), Helen Elaine Koltalo (1945, 1947), Margaret M. Hunter (1946), Thomas Walter Kelly (1947-1948), Susan Letandre (1948-1949), Elizabelh Albina Gmitrowski (1949-1950), Mrs. Myrtle Johnston (1950), Henrietia Christine Klousterboer (1951), Miss Verna Theresa Novakowski (1951-1952), Jean Senicie (1952-1956), Catherine Lesosky (1956-1959), Anne Chrusch (1960), and Steve Zasiawny (1960-1966).
