My first four years were at a two room country school house. I had to walk about a mile. There were winter days when the snow was piled so high, the old side road was like a tunnel.
There were some other kids that I would meet up with at the farm gate who had already walked about a mile. We cut along the CNR railway line for part of the trip although we would sometimes get yelled at by passing train crews, or get cinders in our eyes from the locomotives.
It would have been shorter to go across the fields but the one neighbour always kept a mean bull in the pasture. You could use the fields in the winter if the snow wasn't too deep.
One of the highlights was when we pulled down Janice B's pants in the schoolyard as the teacher happened to be watching out the window. She casually waved us in and laid down several good whacks with her leather strap!
They amalgamated the local schools in the early 60s and bused us all over the Township. I did grade 5-8 in a bigger school and high school (or continuation school they sometimes called it) in Dundas.
Thank you for the video caser.

Poor Janice ....your just lucky she didnt turn around and do that to you right back



I had many members of my family who atteded one or two room school houses back in those days also.Two generation's of my family attended the Richmond school or SS #6 or as my grandfather calls it the Christie school at Christie (Milton) Ontario.That School house is now in the OAM/CHP in Milton Ontario not far from were it was originally located.After the school closed in 1965 it sat unused for several years before it was moved to the Museum in the mid to late 70's.Like Mr Mannen my dad and aunt also attended closer to the end of the one and two room school house era in the late 50's to early 60's and then moved on to more modern style of schools or school system that we have today or continuation school as they were called then......and yes G you are the same age as my dad and close to my aunts age
