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

Lindal School District was organized in April 1900. A school building was constructed the next year in the southeast quarter of 29-1-6 west of the Principal Meridian, in the Rural Municipality of Stanley. It was one of the few one-room schools in Manitoba that hosted classes from grade 1 through grade 12. It closed in January 1967. As of the early 1990s, the wood frame building still sat at the site but it is no longer present.
