Historic Sites of Manitoba: Kinloss School No. 934 (Municipality of Two Borders)

The Kinloss School District was established formally in March 1898, and a one-room frame school building was erected on the northeast corner of 19-6-27 west in the Principal Meridian, in what is now the Rural Municipality of Two Borders. The school closed in 1961 and the district was dissolved in 1964. Its remaining students went to Reston Consolidated School No. 141. The school building was sold and is no longer present at the site, but a monument dedicated on 26 July 1987 commemorates it. A plaque attached to the monument lists the surnames of families who settled in the Kinloss area between 1899 and 1962.

The teachers of Kinloss School were George W. McDonald (1897-1898), Miss Harlowe, Miss Cochrane, Lizzie Stewart, Helen McPherson, Lydia Carrothers, Jennie Downey, Miss Calder, May Townsley, Annie Wilson, Alfred John Richards (1912-1913), Blanche Bent, Alice Willett, Ada Boulton, Aileen McFarlane, Mabel Pickersgill, Miss Martin, M.
