The Lundar School District was established formally in February 1913 but it existed for only a few months before becoming the Lundar Consolidated School District. It operated a school in Lundar in the Rural Municipality of Coldwell. After the original school building was destroyed by fire on 8 July 1947, a new school opened in the fall of 1949, expanded with an addition on the back in December 1956.
Among the other teachers at Lundar School were E. Salome Halldorson (1918-1919) and Benno Richard Klaassen (?-1979).
