The History of the Rose District
Miss Lillian Aunger
1933-1937
Rose School was situated eight miles north east of Rimbey, near the north end of Gull Lake and was built in 1910 on the S.E. of 33-42-1-5. The name was chosen from a number of suggestions. It was named after the profusion of roses growing in the community. It was situated in a picturesque spot on the north bank of Gull Lake. An arm, or creek at low water, flowed by the edge of the school yard, and each spring part of the schoolyard was under water.
The school was constructed due to the efforts of the men of the first school board; Humphrey Hunting, Peter T. Adams and Mr. Rudolph. Grades one to nine were taught, ably super-vised by School Inspector, Mr. Gibson, with Quincy Chiles as the first teacher.
The school was closed for the 1944 - 1945 school year. Correspondence courses were supervised by Bob Whitesell in the fall of 1946, and Miss Ellen Hayward in the spring of 1947.
The school was closed from 1948 - 1950 when it was moved to a new location on the N.W. of 26-42-1-5 and re-opened.
Crestomere School opened in 1953, and students were bussed there.
