St Colman’s Primary School

St Colman’s Primary School

After 147 years of teaching children in the local community, this school closed its doors in May of 2009.

Opening in 1862 as a National School, it then went on to become a Public Elementary in 1964 and at its peak had 90 pupils enrolled and 4 teachers.

This school is quite off the beaten track, not surrounded by any substantial communities or main roads and it closed due to dwindling numbers. When it closed, it only had 2 pupils enrolled who were taught by the principal himself.
