Opening of the First School

About this object

Raglan’s first school began in 1866, in a tent. The first school building was in the Methodist chapel on the corner of James Street and Wallis Street (now the site of the Bowling Club). With the passing of the Education Act in 1877, the church school became a public school and moved in 1883 to the new Stewart Street building of one room with a porch. This is now the restored Old School Arts Centre.
