Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sapton School No. 894 (Sapton, RM of Springfield)

The Sapton School District was established in March 1895 and one-room schoolhouses operated at NE16-12-6E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. In 1965, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Hazelridge Consolidated School District No. 1583 and later the Transcona-Springfield School Division.

Among the teachers who worked at Sapton School were Marie Lozinski (1933-1934, grades 1-4), Anne Kravetz (1939-1940, grades 1-4), S. L. Theriault (1948-1949, grades 1-8), Louis Pokrant (grades 1959-1962, grades 1-8), Walter C. Bilych (?-?), Vic Woyna (?-?), and Ed Nazarko (?-?).
