Historic Sites of Manitoba: Sunrise School No. 5 (RM of St. Andrews)

In 1939, Sunrise School was opened by the Mapleton School District No. 5 on Sunnyside Road in the Rural Municipality of St. Andrews south of Selkirk. By 1982, the one-room schoolhouse was gone and only a foundation remained at the site where it stood.

Among the teachers of Sunrise School was Elinor Kartzmark (1943-1944).
