Historic Sites of Manitoba: Northcliffe School No. 1901 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Northcliffe School District was established in July 1917 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW25-28-28W in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. In 1967, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Goose Lake Consolidated School District and later the Intermountain School Division. All that remained at the time of a 2014 site visit was a commemorative sign and the concrete foundation for the school building.

Among the teachers of Northcliffe School was Peter Bugera.
