Comments: Looking for information on "Lake School", a one room school that was active from 1907 until 1957. It was located about 8 klm west of the Village of Briercrest. We are in the process of restoration project.

Comments: Attended school in Pontrilas. The small school had a plaque stating it was part of "Little Hollywood" district. Last I heard, it was serving as someone's chicken coop! Who remembers the great merry-go-round?

Comments: As my family tells it my greatgrandfather began the Temple school. My mom and her sibling attended in early 30's before it closed. The family then got together in late 80's to but a kairn (stone) there to remember the now crumbling building. Anna Rainone, daughter of Lovina Temple

Comments: My grandfather, Charlie Charters, hauled the lumber for Oakenshaw school in 1916. The one room school operated to serve the rural area roughly 5 miles west and 2 miles south of the village of Stranraer, Saskatchewan. My uncles, cousins, siblings, and neighbours all attended until the school closed in 1955. The Oakenshaw school sat vacant for several years and then was moved to the village of Plenty, and converted to a residence by Gordon Rundle. I discovered this very worthwhile site while researching material for a page on my own web site. http://www.geocities.com/murraycharters/038.html

Comments: I taught in Snowflake Scool District from 1956 to 1958. It was located just east of Neudorf, but I do not see it in your list. Could it have had a different name?

Comments: Hi, I love this section. My dad went to a one-room schoolhouse until it shut down in the 1960s. The name of his school was Gelowitz School, and it was in the Grayson district. He has told me several stories about it and it makes me wish that I had been a student at a one- room schoolhouse. His teacher, Mrs. Leona Dean (nee Ottenbreit), was the teacher of his school, and I was lucky enough to have her as my Grade 1 and 2 teacher in Grayson School, shortly before her retirement.

Comments: I know of a one room school house that is in the area I grew up in. It was called Gregherd School and both of my grandparents attended it. It originated on Apr. 3, 1914 and is located at NW 32-24-17 W2. It is located in school district #3142. It is now a Heritage site and is very worthwhile to check out. Original students hace placed marker stones with their names on them and there is other items on display there also.

Comments: Really enjoyed this valuable website on the one room schol house. As my Dad attended one of these schools around 1922-23 I was really interested. I am trying to find his school records for a school called Bredock of Beedock near Canora/Donwell. Can anyone give me a hand and point me in the right direction where I might find this school?

Comments: I would like to pass on my thanks for a beautifully designed/written/presented website on the One Room School Project! In the midst of compiling family history for the Vogel Family who arrived in Saskatchewan, Canada in 1908 (these Russian children attended Amdewanda School) and another side of the family who came to Kennedy about the same time - I was thrilled to navigate your site and find information placing the Amdewanda School geographically and a photo of the Kenndy School, built in 1905. Accessing the booklet on early Saskatachewan women teachers gave me a "sense" of the times when my husband's two grandmothers were educated in one room school houses. Thank you for a wonderful project that you are sharing with everyone! Denise Daubert

Comments: I am looking for Silver Creek School. It was about three or four miles from Coté, Sask, about ten miles from Kamsack, Sask. I believe it closed in about 1956 or 1957. I went there for my first four grades and remember being heartbroken when it closed and we had to go to school in Kamsack.

Comments: I attended Eigenheim District school in the 1940's. I( did not see it listed in your alphabetical listings. I attended there for the first years of schooling and I remember it well. We had 32 students, one teacher of course, a Mr. Nick Kroeker. Almost all of the students were first cousins of mine. I went back a number of years ago and there was only a rock with a plaque on it. I was the only student in Grade 4 so I took grades 4 and 5 at the same time because I believe there was only one student in Grade 5. Interesting education!!!!!

I attended Braeval School in the Meadow Lake District from 1957 to 1964 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! We had Grades 1 to 8 (with only 5-6 grades functional at any one time) with one teacher. Elly Ward was the teacher for years and ruled with both an iron fist (for the older boys who wanted to be farming) and with care (for those looong recesses when the whole school was playing ball). There was a barn on the property and that afforded us an extra playground, although technically forbidden. We had a coal furnace and there were many mornings when we had our mittens on for a long time while the furnace heated up the school. I have stories almost too numerous to mention regarding this unique experience. Are there any other folks who attended that are reading this? Send me an e-mail......

Hi There
May name is Lillian Thompson Kelly Gross and I attended Glen Adelaide school from 1955 to 1960 The school is outside of Wawota

l. Is there anyone out there who was with me? I know there is a marker and I live in BC now but it would be nice if someone local could take a picture of the Marker and send it to this site. I have such fond memories of sitting in a classroom with 12 grades. I would be happy to hear from anyone who attended this school or lives close to Wawota.

Hi, my name is Debbie In the mid-70's my parents took us kids out west for a camping vacation and we got to see the actual one-room schoolhouse that my mom attended. It was Brownhill SD 353, and there are two neighbouring churches in the area. I don't know where or what the churches names are but one of them she used to attend and if you can help me with the names and/or locations of these churches I'd be very grateful as we are trying to get all the information we can for our family tree geneology project. Thank you, Debbie Lewis

Query about Kennisberg School #1220 near Fenwood (RM Stanley 215)?
Hello
I just discovered your website One Room School Project and I believe I found the school that my grandfather, Edward Klein, would have taught at....He homesteaded on the next section SE 1/4 Sec 12 Tp 23 east of the Kennisberg School on the NW Sec 11 Tp 23 Rge 8 W2M in School District #1220. (there was another school on Sec 23 same Tp with the same name and within the same SD). The school and homestead was south and east of Fenwood. Where would I post a query about whether anyone had any information about for that school and school district? Thanks in advance

Hi, My dad was one of a small handful of teachers in Bernadette School District 4587. He taught there from 1938 to 1961. When he left, the school was closed and moved to the nearby First Nations Reservation where, I believe, it became a dancehall. I’ve been look for old photographs of the school. Does anyone have any?

Name:Hudmore School
Place :near Arcola between Froude and Stoughton

Name:O'Brien School
Place :near Stoughton

Name:Wood Mountain
Place :near Wood Mountain


Email: Shirley Kulchyski

I really enjoyed your One Room Schoolhouse Project. I attended a one room school house Hudmore School it was in the Arcola School District on Highway 13 between Froude and Stoughton. I attended grade 1-3.

Also I was curious about a school I think the correct name was O'Brien not sure of the spelling it was a short distance from Stoughton SK. My Mom Ellen Armstrong taught there prior to marrying my father William Mitchell, it would have been 1935-36.

She also taught at Wood Mountain her first school upon graduating from normal school.

I would be interested in anyone who remembers these schools.

Name: ? School
Place :near Woodlight/Fort Pelly, Saskatchewan


Email: Charlotte Pakulak, Duncan, BC.

We have a photo of a schoolhouse that belonged to William Pakulak and his wife Mary Woloschuk Pakulak, both of whom were raised in pioneer families of Saskatchewan, near Fort Pelly and Sturgis (Preeceville, . Both are long gone, and no one of their generation remains. We can’t date or decisively identify the photo, but we do have some idea of the possible name of the school/school district. Woodlight / Fort Pelly Saskatchewan schoolhouse. We would love to have this one added [to the gallery of pictures]. We think it is most likely the photo is the school attended by Mr. Pakulak, as his wife is known to have seldom if ever attended school. However, her siblings did attend school, so the photo could also have belonged to her.
If nothing else turns up to narrow it down, the photo can at least be described as belonging to families that farmed near Fort Pelly and Woodlight but could be from other nearby school districts. Charlotte Pakulak, Duncan, BC.
If anyone has any clues as to this school house, teacher and pupils, please E-mail Julia, ORSH Webmaster
