Hoosier School

I went to school here for my first few grades. It is the four room school house built in 1930 in the small town of Hoosier, located in Saskatchewan near the Alberta boarder. When I attended school here only two of the rooms were in use and by the summer of 1966 the school had closed.


I remember the basement had a concrete wall dividing it in half, each side having its own stairway, the left side for the girls and boys on the right...and you didn't want to get caught on the wrong side..!!!

My family moved to Manitoba in the mid 60s where my next school was a One Room School House! There were six little rows of desks for the six grades taught there.

School has changed a lot since then hasn't it.......
