About Our School

History of Bishop Routhier School

Bishop Routhier School became a part of Northland School Division No. 61 on November 21, 1961.

Up to 1982, Bishop Routhier School was a four classroom school. In 1982, major renovations were made, and a kitchen, gymnasium, utility room, storage room and two offices were added onto the original building. Each existing classroom was renovated and refinished. In the following years three portable classrooms were added, landscaping work was completed and playground equipment was constructed.

In the fall of 2000. major structural and foundational problems were detected at Bishop Routhier School. Fortunately, the community of Peavine was chosen as one of the places nominated and awarded a new school. In April 2010 we relocated to the new facilities and completed the 2009 - 2010 school year in a modern fully functional school. The current school year will be our 6th full year in the new facility.
