    PLUNKETT, SK ONE ROOM SCHOOL HOUSE
    BADGER SCHOOL DISTRICT #913
    
    I spoke to my grandmother  who tells me that the
    school was actually called the Badger school house,
    near Wolverine. The  Baker family (my grandmothers)
    had a homestead in  the area.   It was open  from 
    1913-1960. A fellow named Brock Duke was THE
    teacher for 25 years.
     
    There was some sort of commemoration about 5 years
    ago when it got an historical designation.  
    outside Plunkett. There is a special site with a
    statue erected by former students (eg My
    grandmother, her sisters and friends who were
    students there in the 1920s).  It's special.

    Webmaster note:  to have a teacher such as 
    Brock Duke available to teach for 25 years
    in the early days of One Room School House
    Formation was an exception to the norm. 
    More often the not, the early teachers 
    were provisional teachers who taught with
    a one year certificate which needed to 
    be re-newed annually, and the early Board 
    of Education usually encouraged further
    education of these re-applicants.
