Historic Sites of Manitoba: Oakleigh Union School No. 914 (RM of Oakview)

The Oakleigh Union School District was organized formally in September 1897, and a school was erected at this site in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview in 1902. It closed in 1963 and the district was dissolved in January 1965. Its catchment area was divided between Rivers Consolidated School District No. 1484 and Rapid City Consolidated School District No. 2392. A small stone monument was erected at the site in 1983 in commemoration of the centenary of the Rural Municipality of Saskatchewan.

Among the teachers of Oakleigh Union School were A. E. N. Carnochan (1954-1956), Pauline Johnson, and Mr. Pollock.
