History

The Monmawala School District No. 3074 was established in 1913 near the town of Macrorie, Saskatchewan. It was officially named Manawata School District No. 3074, however, Monmawalla was used in the official correspondence. From 1915 onward one 'l' was dropped and the name became Monmawala School District No. 3074. The name was taken from the Chit-Chat page of an issue of the Winnipeg Free Press by local resident, Edgar Hagerman.

The schoolhouse was built on land location NW14-27-9-W3 in the summer of 1914 and classes began in August of that year. The first teacher was Margaret Mulvihill and approximately 20 students enrolled in the initial class.

A fire destroyed the school building in 1931. It was rebuilt with insurance money and school continued until 1949. The school district then became part of the Macrorie Consolidated School District No. 3600 which formed part of the Outlook School Unit.

The Monmawala School District No. 3074 board of trustees disbanded in 1951.
