The present school bulding in Fannystelle, in the Rural Municipality of Grey, opened in 1951 with the consolidation of several rural schools in the surrounding area. Among the schools consolidated were Fannystelle School No. 767 (its predecessor in Fannystelle), Castagnier School No. 1183 (1902-1957, at SW2-10-3W), Joyce School No. 2161, and Syrenne School No. 2153 (1926-1957, at NE18-9-3W). The school closed around 1979. The building is a municipally-designated heritage site (1987).
