Historic Sites of Manitoba: Valley Stream School No. 1104 (Municipality of WestLake-Gladstone)

The Valley Stream School District was organized formally in December 1900. As of 1944, a one-room schoolhouse was operating at the northwest corner of SW10-13-11W in the Rural Municipality of Westbourne. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Gladstone Consolidated School District and later the Pine Creek School Division.

Among the teachers of Valley Stream School was Nell Ruchkall Ramsay (1943-1944).
