Principals | Vice-Principals | Teachers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

The Golden Bay School District was organized formally in June 1907 and a wood frame building was built on the southwest quarter of 1-13-8 east of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead. In 1968, the school closed and the building was renovated into a private residence. As of 2013, some of the original records for the school are held by the building’s owner.
