Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sunny Slope School No. 1298 (RM of Shell River)

The Sunny Slope School District was organized formally in June 1904. The school operated on the southeast quarter of 36-27-29 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Shell River. It was destroyed by fire and replaced the following year. The school closed in 1965 when it was consolidated into the Intermountain School Division and the remaining students went to Goose Lake Consolidated School No. 1283. The school building is no longer present at the site but a monument erected in July 2000 commemorates it.

Among the teachers of Sunny Slope School was W. J. Rodgers.
