Administrative history / Biographical sketch

The New World School District served the area between Silverwood and Woking. Minutes of 1934-35, recorded by Steven Platzer, secretary/treasurer with Steve Boychuk, chairman, record preparations for the building of a school house. In 1936, there was a motion to hire a teacher in July. In 1939, Miss Winnifred Jones was offered a second contract for $675 with a room, wood, water, ice, bed and stove provided. In December, 1940, a trustee was elected to represent the district in the Spirit River School Division.
