Administrative history

Baldur School operated for 10 years in the Poplar Hill area of Hythe, not far from Bush Lake. It was named after a hero in Norse Mythology, as were the nearby districts of Valhalla and Odin. The first organizational meeting was in 1928, and the school was started that fall by volunteer labour. By Christmas of 1929, the school was ready and a teacher was hired, Mary Lewis. Through the depression which followed, the community struggled to keep the school open and teachers hired. Two of the earliest teachers were Agnes Loberg and Alice Stolee. The school closed in June 1955 and the students bussed to Hythe or Valhalla thereafter.
