Historic Sites of Manitoba: Hillside Beach School No. 1980 (RM of Alexander)

The Hillside Beach School District was established formally in May 1919 and a one-room log schoolhouse operated at SE34-19-7E in what was later the Rural Municipality of Alexander. It was destroyed by fire in 1942 and was replaced later that year. The school closed in 1967 and the district was dissolved, its area becoming part of the Lord Selkirk School Division. The former school building was sold and used for a time as a private residence. It was gone at the time of a 2018 site visit.

The teachers of Hillside Beach School were V. Olive Crealock (1922), Pearl Adolfson (1922-1923, 1924-1927), Flora S. Armstrong (1923), Maude McKenzie (1924-1925), Nellie C. Robertson (1927-1928), Helen I. Isbister (1928-1930), Nessie Shankman (1930-1931), Jessie Webb Smeltzer (1932-1948), Daniel Demerer Lysack (1949), Henry Albert Craig (1949-1950), Roy Gilbert Mattews (1950-1953), Anne Lester (1953-1954), Dorothy Louise Jones (1954-1955), Elizabeth Ann Toews (1955-1956), Eleanor Kathleen Helwer (1956-1957), Elizabeth Jean Bowler (1957-1958), Jane E.
