Historic Sites of Manitoba: Cupar School No. 1633 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Cupar School District was established formally in December 1911 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at the southeast corner of NE18-25-29W in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Goose Lake Consolidated School District and later the Intermountain School Division. The former school building still stands at the site and is used as a private residence.

Among the teachers of Cupar School was Ruby Alexander.
