Historic Sites of Manitoba: Janowski School No. 1512 (RM of Lakeshore)

The Janowski School District was organized formally in September 1909, named for Polish settler Andrei Janowski who donated the land for a schoolhouse at the northwest corner of NW20-28-17W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore and supervised its construction. In 1936, the district became part of the Lawrence Municipal School District.

Among the teachers of Janowski School were Mrs. White (1910) and George E. Basham (1911).
