The Gidginbung Provisional School, in the County of Bland, opened in January 1904. Provisional Schools were opened in areas of smaller populations where insufficient children attended to justify the opening of a full public school. By 1904 ten 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. (1)
In July 1904 the school was converted to a public school. A public school was the basic elementary school in the New South Wales system of education. By 1904 an attendance of twenty students was required to maintain a school of this classification. (2)
Gidginbung Public School closed in December 1969. (3)
