Historic Sites of Manitoba: Arondale School No. 1522 (RM of Tache)

The Arondale School District was organized formally in March 1910 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at E21-9-6E in the Rural Municipality of Tache. Around 1927, the original frame building was replaced by another one-storey wood frame structure. After the school closed around 1967, the building was used as a garage on a neighbouring property.

Among the teachers of Arondale School was Elbert Toews (1953-1954).
