Heritage Winnipeg – Education in Our Early History
Wednesday, October 24th at 11:00 a.m.
“Education. In the early history of our City, education was done at home by the parents. If your father was a farmer, that was what was taught to you. A blacksmith would teach his son the trade, the mother teaching the daughter how to be a housewife. Soon the Hudson’s Bay Company employees would want their sons to learn more to get a job with the company. This meant learning new and more fundamentals that they could not learn at home. Thus a classroom education was required. Let’s look at the early beginnings of our educational system, and maybe you will be reminded of your youthful years of learning!”
