Labour was often pooled to build the one-room schoolhouse, along with a woodshed, board, outhouse and well. The school room was often poorly lit and somewhat chilly. The only way of adjusting the heat was to move closer to, or farther away from, the stove. Most students walked, rode horseback or arrived by horse and buggy. Schools were usually the social centre or recreation centre for the community. They were used for Christmas concerts, church services, dances, meetings and other events.
