The Rhineland-Stanley Teachers' Association included the teachers of the rural municipalities of Rhineland and Stanley in southern Manitoba, most of whom were Mennonites. This association was organized by H. H. Ewert of Gretna, Manitoba in the 1890s to further the cause of education among the Mennonites of this province. The members of the association held a two-day convention each fall. Before World War I the second day of the convention was always conducted in German, but later both days were in English. The locale of the convention alternated between the main towns of the two municipalities. The 1949 convention was held in Winkler; 145 teachers attended. By 1958 the RSTA area was organized into two divisions with 220 teachers, though still meeting in one convention. N. G. Neufeld had been convention secretary during the 1950s.
