The history of Hinton School

The original school at Hinton was Presbyterian Denominational, established in 1841.

When the teacher resigned in 1848, the Board of National Education appointed William Heard as teacher of a Government school in April 1849 in part of a store shed on the river bank. A new National School was built in 1854.

This building was demolished when the present school was built, with work starting in 1877 and finishing in 1878, including the teachers residence.
