Historic Sites of Manitoba: Mayne School No. 753 (Municipality of Riverdale)

The Mayne School District was established in May 1893, probably named for Thomas Mayne Daly, and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE28-11-21W in what is now the Municipality of Riverdale. The school closed in June 1959 due to insufficient enrollment. The district was dissolved in 1966 and its catchment area became part of the River Consolidated School District and later the Rolling River School Division.

Among the teachers of Mayne School were Constance Jean Wareham “Bernice” McDonald (1949-1950), Miss Edith Neufeld (1950-1952), Miss Ruth Rogers (1952-1953, 1954-1955), Miss Laura Willems (1953-1954), Miss Caroline M. Stobbe (1955-1956), and Mrs. Wilhelmina “Ena” Ross (1956-1959).
