Hall School Centenary 1911 - 2011
16 April 2011
The Centenary of Hall Primary School will be celebrated over the weekend of April 16-17th 2011.
Everyone who has had some involvement with the school over the years – pupils, teachers and other staff, parents, and others – is invited 'back to Hall' for the Centenary. Although the school was closed in 2006, it has been at the centre of village and district life for nearly a hundred years, and this will be an occasion to recognize and give thanks to all those who have given it life and purpose.
It will also be a great opportunity for reunions. If you are interested in the Centenary celebrations, and want to be kept informed, please register your interest, and let others know about it.
This website will carry up to date information about the Centenary weekend, and stories and information about the school and its members.
We plan to have the school site and buildings open for visiting on the Saturday afternoon. There will be a number of activities including opening of the school's Time Capsule, as prescribed at the time of it's sealing.
The original 1911 one teacher school, now the Hall School Museum (the Laurie Copping Heritage Centre), will be open over the whole weekend. We are currently undertaking a Conservation Management Plan for the Museum, and producing a Handbook for volunteer guides.
On Saturday 16th April there will be a Centenary Dinner in the (newly renovated) Hall Pavilion, featuring entertainment, special guests, and celebration of a century of schooling at Hall. If you register your interest now, then later on you will receive an invitation to attend to the Dinner.
Subject to interest from those attending, we will organize group bookings on Sunday morning at a number of the fine local wineries and cafes.
