Historic Sites of Manitoba: Ringrose School No. 2119 (RM of Fisher)

The Ringrose School District was organized formally in March 1925. A one-room schoolhouse was constructed at SW21-24-2W in the Rural Municipality of Fisher, on two acres of land donated by homesteader Joseph Thomas Ringrose, for whom the district was named. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. The former school building was moved to the Fisher Branch School. It was later sold to a local resident and, as of 2014, was still standing. Some remnants of its foundation remain at the original site.

Among the teachers of Ringrose School were Eugenie Negrych (1927-1928), ? (1928-1929), Ivan Pakulak (1929-1930, 1942-1943), Mary Swirski (1930-1932), Michael Richard Firman (1932-1935), ?
