Historic Sites of Manitoba: Toutes Aides School No. 1724 (RM of Lakeshore)

The Toutes Aides School District was organized formally in February 1914 and, during 1915, a one-room schoolhouse was constructed at NW9-29-15W, near Toutes Aides in what is now the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore. In 1936, the district became part of the Lawrence Municipal School District. In the late 1940s, the school was moved closer to the town site and a twelve-foot addition was made to it. After the school closed, the building was used for a time as a tourist information centre. It later stood vacant and was eventually demolished.

Among the teachers of Toutes Aides School were Bernadette Adam (1916), Mr. Crow, Miss Payette, and Imelda Saurette (1938).
