Bergthal Bergthal School 466 Map

William Rempel (my great grandfather) in the first school in Bergthal Saskatchewan. I had long correspondence with a man who idís the school since all it said on the back is Bergthal School. Wm Rempel was a teacher in Gretna MB and moved to Sask about 1898. He taught for only a while in Sask. and then was post master in Rosthern from 1901- 1911. I do not know if that school was for Mennonites only, kind of doubt it, because Wm. Rempel was an advocate of public schools.
I think William Eldon ďBillĒ Janzen. taught at Green Hill School District for about 4 years, from approximately 1916 to 1920. Alongside teaching, Bill Janzen ran his fatherís car dealership with his brother for a couple of years. No idea when the school his grandfather William Rempel taught at was built. It was the first school in Bergthal and Wm. Rempel taught there about 1898 but for how long I donít know.

Further information:
A history of the first Bergthal school is related on page 109 of the local history book, Old and New Furrows: the story of Rosthern; "The first teacher in the 1890's was Mr. William Rempel of Rosthern. He taught two years with about twenty students attending. His son, Peter Rempel, resided in Rosthern." On page 453, "in 1916, the Janzen sons, William and Otto, installed garage equipment in the building, took on the General Motors Agency, opened for business as a garage selling Chevrolet and McLaughlin cars. They continued in this occupation until 1919, when they sold out to Clarence Cawley....William Janzen taught school for a number of years, went to the University of Alberta in Edmonton to graduate in dentistry. He opened a dental practice at Wetaskiwin serving in that profession for many years until he retired."
