Deloro Separate School

The first separate school in Deloro was opened in 1897 in a log house; the one-room school built there in 1917 served that community for more than 50 years.

 

Miss Forrest of Almonte was hired as teacher for September of 1909,  and Miss Curran from Port Hope in 1917.

Margie Royle writes:  This is where I started school in September 1955 but moved into Sacred Heart School in Marmora before the year was out. Agnes Loveless was the teacher. I don't remember it looking so desolate. Some happy memories here!

Pat McCrodan writes:  I rememberRita Farrell, teacher, gathering milkweed pods for the war effort for life preservers. One year, 4 ft snow in the yard and the grade eights dug tunnels all over the yard.
