Closure of School on Pasqua Reserve

Pasqua's day school closed because attendance was too low. There were 33 children from this reserve who were thus sent to the industrial school at Fort Qu'Appelle and the boarding school at Muscowpetung.

The closure of the Pasqua school speaks both to Indigenous reticence to have their children educated through the imposed Euro-Canadian school system, and to government unwillingness to invest in the quality education of Indigenous children.
