Half-time schools refers to when two schools shared a teacher. Pro­vi­sional schools first emerged in 1867. They had at least 15 chil­dren but fewer than the 25 re­quired for a pub­lic school.

Pub­lic schools were the ba­sic el­e­men­tary school in NSW. They were known as na­tional schools from 1843-66 and as pub­lic schools since 1867. Orig­i­nally the at­ten­dance of 30 chil­dren was re­quired for the es­tab­lish­ment of a school, but this was re­duced to 25 in 1867 and 20 in 1880. In 1957, the min­i­mum fig­ure was re­duced to nine.
