In 1890, Wolseley had a two room school, by 1900 a four room school. SPRING HILL, MOFFAT, SOUTHGATE, ROSE LANE, ALLINDALE, ERNSCLIFFE, ELLISBORO, POPLAR GROVE, MOUNT CRESCENT, ALBERT, SUMMERBERRY, CARR HILL, WESTFIELD, and DURHAM were rural schools absorbed into the INDIAN HEAD SCHOOL UNIT.

In 1963 the school area was absorbed into SUB UNIT 7 of the INDIAN HEAD SCHOOL UNIT NO 19 rather than the REGINA (EAST) SCHOOL UNIT NO 21 or the WOLSELEY CONSOLIDATED SCHOOL DISTRICT.
