    Historical note

    The United German School of North Kildonan operated Saturday German School program until the end of May 1984, when the four supporting Mennonite congregations (North Kildonan Mennonite Brethren, North Kildonan Mennonite, Springfield Heights Mennonite and Douglas Mennonite) agreed to officially close the school and dispose of all its assets. The strong and successful English-German Bilingual Program offered by the Rivereast School Division in the Princess Margaret and Donwood Schools, and the deceased enrollment in the Saturday school program precipitated this decision. German schools in one form or another had been a popular institution in North Kildonan for over 50 years.

    Scope and content note

    This fonds consists of minutes, correspondence, annual financial statements, lists of teachers and students, and detailed financial information for the years just prior to is closing and the dispersement of its assets.
