Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stacpoole School No. 2236 (RM of Rockwood)
The Stacpoole School District was organized in November 1932, named for Judge R. A. Stacpoole, and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE25-16-2E in the Rural Municipality of Rockwood. The district was dissolved in 1964 and students from this area went to Teulon Consolidated School No. 1093. The district later became part of the Interlake School Division. There is no vestige of the former school building at the site.
