Dates of existence


Barons Consolidated School District No. 8 was established in Barons, Alberta on July 24, 1915 when Goldendale S.D. No. 1527, Lundy S.D. No. 1439, Laurel Bank S.D. No. 3248, Barons S.D. No. 2220, Moulin S.D. No. 3246, Wheatland S.D. No. 1716 and Strathgarry S.D. No. 3247 were amalgamated. The Barons school building was used for the consolidated district. New rooms were added in 1919 and at the same time the Goldendale school building was moved into town to provide extra classrooms. In 1913 a two storey brick school was built. Grades one to twelve were taught at the school until 1966 when high school students were bused to Lethbridge.
