Historic Sites of Manitoba: Clemenceau School No. 1957 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Clemenceau School District was established in March 1919, probably named for French politician Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929), and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW25-29-29W in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Intermountain School Division. A metal sign commemorates the school at its former site.

Among the teachers who worked at Clemenceau School through the years was Mary H. Simpson.
