Pontrilas School
near Nipawin, and Codette Saskatchewan





There were actually two schools in Pontrilas when I attended school there, from 1966 to 1968. The small one room school held grades 1 and 2. The larger school held grades 3-6 and 7-12. Starting in 1969, we all ended up being bussed to Codette and Nipawin and the schools were closed.

This is a picture of the two room school in Pontrilas with the merry-go-round outside from about 1968. Standing around the merry-go-round is my grandmother, Verna Sanders, and some cousins and friends.

The same merry-go-round circa 1944 can be found in a virtual museum photo at Pontrilas merry-go-round.
