Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sebright School No. 1182 (RM of Brokenhead)

The Sebright School District was established in April 1902 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SE9-13-7E in the Rural Municipality of Brokenhead. In 1966, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Garson-Tyndall Consolidated School District No. 2450 and later the Agassiz School Division. The former school building was moved to the Brokenhead-Beausejour Pioneer Village Museum and no vestige of it remains at the original site.

Among the teachers of Sebright School was Katherine Cass Warren (1941-1943, 1944-1945).
