Historic Sites of Manitoba: Iwan Ardan / Rattray School No. 1427 (RM of Brokenhead)
Known originally as the Iwan Ardan School District when it was organized formally in June 1907, it was renamed Rattray School District at some point. A one-room, wood frame schoolhouse operated at SE28-14-8E in what is now the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead. The district was dissolved in 1968 and its catchment area became part of the Agassiz School Division.
Among the teachers of Rattray School was William Jerowsky.
