Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This site at NW2-7-1E in the village of Osborne, in the Rural Municipality of Macdonald, was the location of Osborne School. Established formally in February 1883, the district was dissolved in 1964 and the students went to Domain Consolidated School No. 2342. A sign at the former school site, erected by the municipality in 2014, commemorates it.
