Before the advent of large administrative units in the middle 1900s, Saskatchewan had small school districts every 4-6 miles apart. Most districts consisted of a single 'One Room School.' The Dominion Government made provisions that Sections 11 and 29 of each township were school sections. In an era when transportation was via walking or horse and no roads, travel was difficult. When hauling grain to elevators with horse and wagon, approximately seven miles was considered to be a convenient distance.
