Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sunnyside School No. 40 / Oakbank School No. 40 “B” (RM of Springfield)

Originally known as the Sunnyside School District when it was established in September 1876, a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW27-11-5E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. To handle a larger number of student and reduce their travel time, this second one-classroom school was opened by the spring term of 1916 and unofficially designated with a “B” letter designation. It was renamed the Oakbank School District in January 1954. This site closed in the summer of 1963, with classes returning to the district’s remaining “A” school. The catchment area then became part of the Oakbank Consolidated School District No. 2426.

Among the teachers of School “B” were Albert Carl Gamey (1916), Gertrude E. Bray (1920), Laura K. McCormick (1920-1921), Margaret Hunter (1921), Ruby W. Wilmoth (1921-192), Mildred Mary Hammond (1927-1928), Isabel Jacqueline Duffey (1948-1951), Mrs. M. R. Nazeravich (1951), Emma Massicotte (1951-1952), Orest Stephen Roscoe (1952-1953), Frederick “Fred” Daciw (1953-1955), Muriel Winnifred Solomon (1956-1957), Barney J. Dram (1957-1958), Ted “Teddy” Stoyko (1958-1959), and Diane L. McFarlane (1962-1963).
