Comments: My grandfather, Charlie Charters, hauled the lumber forOakenshaw school in 1916. The one room school operated to serve the ruralarea roughly 5 miles west and 2 miles south of the village of Stranraer,Saskatchewan.My uncles, cousins, siblings, and neighbours all attended until theschool closed in 1955.The Oakenshaw school sat vacant for several years and then was moved tothe village of Plenty, and converted to a residence by Gordon Rundle.I discovered this very worthwhile site while researching material for apage on my own web site.

Comments: Hi, I love this section. My dad went to a one-room schoolhouseuntil it shut down in the 1960s. The name of his school was GelowitzSchool, and it was in the Grayson district. He has told me severalstories about it and it makes me wish that I had been a student at a one-room schoolhouse. His teacher, Mrs. Leona Dean (nee Ottenbreit), was theteacher of his school, and I was lucky enough to have her as my Grade 1and 2 teacher in Grayson School, shortly before her retirement.

Comments: I would like to pass on my thanks for a beautifullydesigned/written/presented website on the One Room School Project! In themidst of compiling family history for the Vogel Family who arrived inSaskatchewan, Canada in 1908 (these Russian children attended AmdewandaSchool) and another side of the family who came to Kennedy about the sametime - I was thrilled to navigate your site and find information placingthe Amdewanda School geographically and a photo of the Kenndy School,built in 1905. Accessing the booklet on early Saskatachewan womenteachers gave me a "sense" of the times when my husband's twograndmothers were educated in one room school houses.Thank you for a wonderful project that you are sharing with everyone!Denise Daubert

Comments: I am looking for Silver Creek School. It was about three orfour miles from Coté, Sask, about ten miles from Kamsack, Sask. Ibelieve it closed in about 1956 or 1957. I went there for my first fourgrades and remember being heartbroken when it closed and we had to go toschool in Kamsack.

Comments: I attended Eigenheim District school in the 1940's. I( did notsee it listed in your alphabetical listings. I attended there for thefirst years of schooling and I remember it well. We had 32 students, oneteacher of course, a Mr. Nick Kroeker. Almost all of the students werefirst cousins of mine. I went back a number of years ago and there wasonly a rock with a plaque on it.I was the only student in Grade 4 so I took grades 4 and 5 at the sametime because I believe there was only one student in Grade 5.Interesting education!!!!!

Email: Dan Lavallee

I attended Braeval School in the Meadow Lake District from 1957 to 1964 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! We had Grades 1 to 8 (with only 5-6 grades functional at any one time) with one teacher. Elly Ward was the teacher for years and ruled with both an iron fist (for the older boys who wanted to be farming) and with care (for those looong recesses when the whole school was playing ball). There was a barn on the property and that afforded us an extra playground, although technically forbidden. We had a coal furnace and there were many mornings when we had our mittens on for a long time while the furnace heated up the school. I have stories almost too numerous to mention regarding this unique experience.Are there any other folks who attended that are reading this?Send me an e-mail......

l. Is there anyone out there who was with me? I know there is a marker and I live in BC now but it would be nice if someone local could take a picture of the Marker and send it to this site. I have such fond memories of sitting in a classroom with 12 grades. I would be happy to hear from anyone who attended this school or lives close to Wawota.

Query about KENNISBERG SCHOOL #1220 near Fenwood (RM Stanley 215)?
I just discovered your website One Room School Project and I believe I found the school that my grandfather, Edward Klein, would have taught at....He homesteaded on the next section SE 1/4 Sec 12 Tp 23 east of the Kennisberg School on the NW Sec 11 Tp 23 Rge 8 W2M in School District #1220. (there was another school on Sec 23 same Tp with the same name and within the same SD). The school and homestead was south and east of Fenwood. Where would I post a query about whether anyone had any information about for that school and school district?Thanks in advance

Name: O'BRIEN School
Place :near Stoughton

Place :near Wood Mountain

Email: Shirley Kulchyski

I really enjoyed your One Room Schoolhouse Project. I attended a one room school house Hudmore School it was in the Arcola School District on Highway 13 between Froude and Stoughton. I attended grade 1-3.

Also I was curious about a school I think the correct name was O'Brien not sure of the spelling it was a short distance from Stoughton SK. My Mom Ellen Armstrong taught there prior to marrying my fatherWilliam Mitchell, it would have been 1935-36.

She also taught at Wood Mountain her first school upon graduating from normal school.

I would be interested in anyone who remembers these schools.

Name: ? School
Place :near Woodlight/Fort Pelly, Saskatchewan

Email: Charlotte Pakulak,Duncan, BC.

We have a photo of a schoolhouse that belonged to William Pakulak and his wife Mary Woloschuk Pakulak, both of whom were raised in pioneer families of Saskatchewan, near Fort Pelly and Sturgis (Preeceville, . Both are long gone, and no one of their generation remains. We can’t date or decisively identify the photo, but we do have some idea of the possible name of the school/school district. Woodlight / Fort Pelly Saskatchewan schoolhouse. We would love to have this one added [to the gallery of pictures]. We think it is most likely the photo is the school attended by Mr. Pakulak, as his wife is known to have seldom if ever attended school. However, her siblings did attend school, so the photo could also have belonged to her.
If nothing else turns up to narrow it down, the photo can at least be described as belonging to families that farmed near Fort Pelly and Woodlight but could be from other nearby school districts. Charlotte Pakulak,Duncan, BC.
If anyone has any clues as to this school house, teacher and pupils, please E-mail Julia, ORSH Webmaster
