Historic Sites of Manitoba: Rose Grove School No. 2216 (RM of Woodlands)

The Rose Grove School District was established in March 1930 and a schoolhouse, purchased from local resident Arthur Cole, was situated on the northeast corner of NE19-13-4W in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands. Classes began around December 1940. The school closed permanently in 1952 and nothing remains at the site.

Among the teachers of Rose Grove School were Clarence D. Voigt (1930-1937), Donald Coates, Evelyn McKinstry, Marjorie Warburton, Lynn Roblin, Dorothy McNichol, Muriel Bruce, and Treva Cook.
