Sandy Bay

 -  1905 -1970

Religious Entity: Catholic

The Sandy Bay School opened in 1905 on 100 acres of land on the Sandy Bay Indian Reserve (now the Sandy Bay First Nation) in southwest Manitoba. Many of its first students were children from the Sandy Bay Reserve who had been attending school at the St. Boniface Industrial School. By the late 1940s the school was severely overcrowded: one government report concluded the school had twice as many students as it could reasonably house. The school was closed in 1970 and ownership of the residence was transferred to a local day school.
