Historic Sites of Manitoba: Greenridge School / Brook’s Grove School No. 544 (Municipality of Roblin)

Known as the Greenridge School District when it was established in May 1888, it was renamed Brook’s Grove at some point in its history. A one-classroom wood frame school building operated at NE30-24-28W in the Rural Municipality of Shell River. It closed in 1913 when it consolidated with Stirling School No. 1208 and Fife School No. 1319 to form Tummel Consolidated School No. 1319. The school building was moved to Tummel where it was used until 1930, when a new, larger schoolhouse was constructed there.

The teachers of Brook’s Grove School were Miss C. Skinner (1891), Miss Jean Thom (1893), Mrs. Drummond (1894), Mr. Lewarton (1895), Miss Lewarton (1896), Miss Mitchell (1897), Miss Elliot (1898), Mr. C. Brydon (1899), Miss R. Waghorn (1900-1902), A. Van Volkenberg (1903), William Alvin Cooper (1904), Miss E. Kelso (1905), Miss N. Young (1906), Miss L. Snider (1907), Miss C. Kelso (1907-1908), Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Cameron, Miss M. Johnston, and Miss L. Russell.
