Administrative history

Petrel School #268 was founded in 1883 to provide educational services to children of the Petrel, Manitoba area. The first school was built in 1884, being replaced in 1918 and closed in 1967 when the Petrel School District became part of the Beautiful Plains School Division. Details of the building itself and its personnel have been published in "Carberry Plains: Century One".
