The Grand Narrows School District was formed officially in December 1906 and a one-room schoolhouse operated in the northeast quarter of 5-29-29W in what was at the time the Rural Municipality of Shell River (now the Municipality of Roblin). The district was dissolved in January 1967 and its catchment area became part of the Goose Lake Consolidated School District and later the Intermountain School Division.
