Lake Lorne School was established formally in April 1901, and a school building was erected the next year on the southeast quarter of 10-3-15 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Cartwright-Roblin. It closed in 1966 and remaining students went to Killarney School No. 252 or Cartwright School No. 174. The district was dissolved in 1967. The school building is no longer on the site but a monument erected on 11 July 1982 and metal sign commemorate it.
