Historic Sites of Manitoba: Randale School No. 2148 (RM of Yellowhead)

The Randale School District was organized in March 1926 and, as of that fall, a one-room schoolhouse operated on the southwest corner of NW3-18-23W in what is now the Rural Municipality of Yellowhead. The district was dissolved in 1960 and its catchment area became part of the Pelly Trail School Division.

Among the teachers who worked at Randale School were Phyllis White, Verna Cochrane Findlay, Thelma Rachel Menzies, May Turnbull Deller (c1950), Thelma Rachel Harrower Chegwin (c1952), and Ethel McNulty.
