Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sclater School No. 1565 (Sclater, RM of Mountain)

The Sclater School District was organized formally in April 1911 and, in 1915, a one-room schoolhouse was constructed at NE11-34-23W in the Rural Municipality of Mountain. The school closed and the district was dissolved in March 1966. Its area became part of the Pine River Consolidated School District No. 2438 and later the Duck Mountain School Division. The school building was destroyed by fire but the teacherage, now collapsed, remains at the site.

Among the teachers of Sclater School were Joseph Pysko (1920), Peter Bugera, and Walter Wolfe (1947).
