Historic Sites of Manitoba: Woodlands Consolidated School No. 25 (Woodlands, RM of Woodlands)

Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

In April 1875, Woodlands School No. 25 was established on the northeast corner 9-14-2 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands, on land donated by farmer David Porteous. The location proved unacceptable to many of the area residents so they raised $700 and moved the building one mile east, to NW22-14-2W. It operated here until April 1919 when it merged with other small schools to become Woodlands Consolidated School in a new building erected in 1920. The school continued to operate on the same site until April 1967 when it became part of the Interlake School Division. This monument, located just west of the school site, was dedicated on 8 July 2000.
