Historic Sites of Manitoba: South Polsen School No. 1523 (RM of Rockwood)

The South Polsen School District was established in February 1910 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE33-17-1E in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its area became part of the Lakeshore School Division. The former school building burned down.

Among the teachers of South Polsen School were Aniceta C. Blancas (1965-1966) and Vera Heykin Shupenia (1966-1967).
