Grenfell Public School Sesquicentenary Exhibition

This exhibition traces the development of Public Education in Grenfell from the "OLD BARK SCHOOL" ( by Henry Lawson) built of bark and poles on the corner of Camp and Forbes St in 1867, through the years from 1871 when the brick and weatherboard school on the Rose and Warraderry St corner was established, until the present. The Melyra St site was opened in 1965 and is now surrounded by gardens, playing fields, tennis and netball courts, covered outdoor areas and an Assembly Hall.
