1945: 1945 - Oyama School loses Upper Classes
By 1945, attendance at Oyama School reached 106 students, elementary and high school, so in September of 1945, students from grade nine to twelve were bussed to Rutland. The first bus driver was Walter Hall.
At this time, the local School Board amalgamated to form School District No. 23 which extended from Oyama to Peachland.
In 1946, the grade seven and eight students were also taken to Rutland.
