Flyback Fridays - Flo Remembers One Room Schools

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past! This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

Flo Bilenduke remembers her first teaching job in Manitoba.  This was her first job and she was 350 km from home and she was very close in age to some of the children she was teaching.    Flo also recounts memories of the Spetch School in Mt. Currie shared with her by June Perkins.   This is an excerpt from Tea & Tales in 2009.
