Our Past

As North Pine had developed a Provisional School system for their district (based on the social demographic of the time) it was a one teacher school for many years.

The Provisional system had certain requirements that were met either by the Department or the community: they were always one teacher schools; they were established by the Minister for Education for the temporary provision of primary instruction to children; the average attendance needed to be between 12 and 30 pupils or face possible closure; the buildings were provided by locals at their expense; they were built either on private land, Crown land or land vested in the Minister for Education; the school committees were responsible for the maintenance of the school.
