Historic Sites of Manitoba: Grainfields School No. 2186 (Municipality of Roblin)
Identified in some sources as Greenfields School, the Grainfields School District was organized formally in August 1928. A school building operated on the southwest quarter of 24-25-28 west of the Principal Meridian in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. It closed in January 1959 and the remaining students went to Goose Lake Consolidated School No. 1283. The former school building still stands at the site, surrounded on all sides by dense growth of caragana bushes.
Among the teachers who worked at Grainfields School was Michael Mazur (2 years).
