Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stirling School No. 1208 (Municipality of Roblin)

The Stirling School District was organized in January 1903 and a one-classroom wood frame school building operated on the northwest corner of SW14-25-29W in what is now the Municipality of Roblin. It closed in 1913 when it consolidated with Fife School No. 1319 and Brook’s Grove School No. 544 to form Tummel Consolidated School No. 1319. The school building was moved to Tummel where it was used until 1930, when a new, larger schoolhouse was constructed there.

The teachers of Stirling School were Miss Linklater (1903), Miss McGougan, Miss Neville, Miss A. Arnott, Miss M. Kines, and Miss St. Ruth.
