Naradhan Public School

Naradhan Public School opened in August 1929 as a Provisional School where 19 children required education in the district. By 1957 all Provisional Schools were converted to Public Schools.


The school was conducted in a room at the side of the local store and rented from Mr W Campbell. The P&C Association was established in 29130 where is was agree that the current arrangements were deemed to be unsatisfactory and a new school building was built at the end of 1933 at a cost of £335 ($670) and was officially opened on 9th March 1934. In 1954 as number increased Naradhan School had two teachers and the RSL Hall was used for the lower division. A second school room was then brought to Naradhan and the children were pleased to vacate the RSL Hall.

The number of students has varied through the years with the greatest number of students being recorded as 53 in 1971 and as student numbers have declined over the years, as is typical of rural schools in NSW, Naradhan Public School is currently classified as a one teacher school.
