Historic Sites of Manitoba: Netley Lake School No. 775 (RM of St. Andrews)

The Netley Lake School District was established in August 1893 and, later that year, a one-room schoolhouse was constructed at NE14-16-4E in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews. In 1928, the building was moved to NW11-16-4E where it was destroyed by fire under mysterious circumstances. A replacement was built in 1940 at SW22-16-4E (about N50.37368, W96.97336) where, after the school closed, it was used as a community centre.

Among the teachers of Netley Lake School were Annie Doucy (1901), John Rogers, Mr. Humes, Miss Downey, and Miss Loutit.
