Riga One Room School house 1803; Manitoba

On page 160 the Manitoba local history book states that the Riga School District 1803 was formed on Aug. 12, 1915 and the school opened in 1918. It was situated approximately 10 miles NE of Garland, MB on 11-32-21. There is a Teacher and student list from 1918 to 1956. I see that Nick Kotyk had taught there in 1930-31 and 1931-32. The photo with the children sitting on the grass is in the book and most of the children are named. There are 3 other photos from 1930s (students and parents), 1943-44 and 1954 of students.

The reference is the book “In Memory of Our Pioneers History of Garland and District 1874 – 1985” Published by Garland History Book committee, General Delivery, Garland, MB R0L 0W0 1989 ISBN: 0-88925-586-5.
