Royal Winner School District 4725 fonds. — 1936-1944. — 5.5 cm of textual records.
The Royal Winner School District served the Prestville-Manir area east of Rycroft. The district was formed in 1936 with R.J.Lundy, chairman, and Mrs. Peter Whelan, secretary/treasurer. The school was built on NW ¼ of Section 2, Township 78 Range 4 West of the 6th Meridian, and A.J.Kravetz was the first teacher, followed by G.D.McFarlane, and Mrs. R. Wells.
The records were preserved and given to the Spirit River School Division No. 47 sometime after it was formed in 1940. Peace Wapiti School Division assumed responsibility for this division in 1994 and the records were deposited in the Grande Prairie Regional Archives in 2003. The assessment records were preserved by the M.D. of Spirit River No. 133 and deposited in the archives in 2010.
