My mother-in-law Mary E. Wyatt attended the Normal School in Moosejaw, Saskatchewan during the period 1943-1948, attaining her teaching certificate in 1948. And went on to teach at her first school in the fall 1948 at New Borger School. The photos I am sending along now were taken while she was at the Normal School.
