Historic Sites of Manitoba: Landerville School No. 1888 (RM of Lac du Bonnet)

The Landerville School District was organized formally in June 1917 and, in February 1918, following an eight-to-one vote of local ratepayers in favour, a $1,500 debenture was issued to build and furnish a schoolhouse. The one-room, wood frame schoolhouse operated at SW35-15-10E in the Rural Municipality of Lac du Bonnet. In December 1922, a further $1,200 debenture was issued to complete the school and construct of a teacherage. The district was dissolved in 1966 and its area became part of the Agassiz School Division.

Among the teachers of Landerville School were Arthur St. Pierre (Spring 1919 - Spring 1921), ? (Fall 1921 - Fall 1922), Jacob Arbuckle (Spring-Fall 1923), Rose A. Hambly (Spring 1924 - Spring 1925), Stanislas “Stanley” Pitre (?-?), and Ignatius Joseph Zaborniak (?-?).
