The Suthwyn School District was established in April 1888 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at SW35-10-4E in the Rural Municipality of Springfield. In 1964, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Dugald Consolidated School District and later the Transcona-Springfield School Division. No vestige of the former school building remains at the site.
