The Moose Meadow School District was established formally in December 1933 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW5-4-8E in the Rural Municipality of La Broquerie. The district was dissolved in 1967 and its catchment area became part of the St. Joachim Consolidated School District No. 2378 and later the Seine River School Division.

Among the teachers of Moose Meadow School were Miss Loretta “Rita” Harrison (1934-1938, 1940) and Leslie Loewen (1952).
