Historic Sites of Manitoba: Bukovina School / Lord Roberts School No. 1218 (RM of Stuartburn)

Link to:
Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Maps | Sources

Known as the Bukovina School District (spelled Bukowina in some sources) when it was organized formally in February 1903, it was renamed Lord Roberts School around the summer of 1921. A one-room schoolhouse operated at SW16-1-6E in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Boundary School Division. It is believed that, after the school closed, the building was moved to Vita and used as an additional classroom for Shevchenko School. When a multi-room school building was constructed there, the one-room school building was sold.
