2015 marks a special year for Balnarring Primary School.
Twenty five years ago the ‘new school’ opened at its current location. Mr Graeme Sweatman was appointed the Principal and Mr Ian Wisken the Assistant Principal.
Unfortunately due to weather conditions, and other issues, work on the site was delayed and the building was not finished in time to start the 1990 school year.
Temporary accommodation was thankfully found for students in Year 1 – Year 5 at the Red Hill Consolidated Primary School. The first intake of Prep students began their schooling at the Balnarring Cricket Club.
The building was completed during the first term enabling the staff and the 173 excited students to move into their new school at the start of term 2.
To mark this special occasion a celebration has been planned for Sunday 24th May, 2015.
During the afternoon the time capsule buried in 1990 will be opened.
With enormous thanks for their contribution to the school we warmly invite past and present members of staff, students and their families to join us for afternoon tea and a tour of the school…….25 years on!
