Historic Sites of Manitoba: Allenby School No. 1944 (RM of Grahamdale)

Known as the Foch School District when it was established in October 1918, probably named for French military officer Ferdinand Foch (1851-1929), it was renamed Allenby at some point during its history. A one-room schoolhouse operated at SW30-27-9W in what would later become the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Lakeshore School Division.
