Dates of existence

August 1918 - December 1969


Glenara Provisional School in the County of Urana opened in September 1954. (1) Provisional Schools were opened in areas of smaller populations where insufficient children attended to justify the opening of a full public school. By 1954 nine students were required to maintain a provisional school. Usually the Department of Education supplied the teacher, books and other teaching materials and the parents provided the premises for the School. (2)

In November 1957 the school classification 'Provisional School' was discontinued and the remaining Schools, including Glenara were converted to public schools. (3)

Glenara Public School closed in December 1969. (4)

There were two previous provisional schools in Glenara, being Glenara Provisional School (1918-1929) and Glenara Provisional School (1932-1953). (5)
