Historic Sites of Manitoba: Slowo School / Strand School No. 1433 (RM of Stuartburn)

Known originally as the Slowo School District when it was organized formally in August 1907, it was renamed Strand in the 1930s. A one-room schoolhouse operated at NE9-2-8E in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its catchment area became part of the Boundary School Division. It is believed that, after the school closed, the building was moved to Vita and used as a classroom. When a multi-room school building was constructed there, the one-room school was sold.
