Snapshot of the past
A photograph of Warragul High School c.1912.
This image of the “School on the Hill” was printed in two parts from an original glass negative.
It was taken soon after the school opened in 1911 as an agricultural high school with a farm attached. In 1912, the school had an enrolment of 19 students.
The commercial and technical courses were later added, making it a multi-purposes school.
After World War II, attendance grew rapidly and in 1959 the school was divided into a high school in a new building and a technical school in the old building.
In 1994, the two schools combined and became Warragul Regional College.
