Historic Sites of Manitoba: Roselawn School No. 1099 (RM of Oakview)

The Roselawn School District was established formally in January 1901. A one-classroom, 20-foot by 30-foot wood frame school building was constructed on NW25-14-22W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Oakview. In 1915, it became part of the Cardale Consolidated School No. 1763. By a short time, the former school building was used as a residence by the Giles family then was sold to local farmer Andy Gourlay and moved to his farmyard.

The teachers of Roselawn School included Mrs. H. Haache (1901), A. M. Ross (1906), Mina Howden (1907), Miss Tremain (1908), C. L. G. Metcalfe (1909), Pearle McField (1910), E. Lillian McPhaden (1911), B. Prouty (1912), Lillian Hales Trott (1913-1914), and Robert Williamson (1915).
