Dandurand School, in the village of Haywood in the Rural Municipality of Grey, was named in honour of Father Damase Dandurand, the first Canadian Oblate Father. The school district was formed in 1922 and became part of the Mountain School Division in 1971. Due to declining enrollment, Dandurand School closed in 1991. The wood frame and stucco building was later demolished and replaced at the site by a monument, dedicated to the students, parents, and teachers of the school.
