Historic Sites of Manitoba: Woodvale School No. 1350 (RM of Roland)

The Woodvale School District was established formally in August 1905. A one-room schoolhouse operated at 2-5-3W in the Rural Municipality of Roland. In 1919, it was consolidated with Myrtle Consolidated School No. 708. After the school closed, the building was moved to the village of Kane (SW6-5-2W) and renovated into a residence for the agent at the UGG grain elevator. It was dismantled in 1996. A metal sign commemorates it at the original site.

Among the teachers of Woodvale School were Mr. Lamb, Flora Hennan, Miss Alice Campbell, Edith Coates, Mr. Anderson, Hubert Bond, Miss Edith Martin (1917), Miss Winnie Cameron (1917), Catherine Zuerbrik, Flora Hennan, Gladys Cook, Mr. Sanderson, and Charles Lamb.
