Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fife School No. 1319 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Fife School District was organized formally in January 1905 and a one-classroom wood frame school building operated at SW17-25-28W in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. It closed in 1913 when it consolidated with Stirling School No. 1208 and Brook’s Grove School No. 544 to form Tummel Consolidated School No. 1319. The school building was moved to Tummel where it was used until 1930, when a new, larger schoolhouse was constructed there.

The teachers of Fife School were Miss Croll (1905), Miss Olive Thompson (1907), Miss M. Jamieson (1907), Miss Agar (1908), and Miss Kelso (1909-1913).
