Glen Iris Primary School celebrating 150 years
Wednesday, 30 July 2014 14:36

The Wesleyan Chapel at 200 Glen Iris Road was the first place of Christian worship, the first public school and the first community meeting place in Glen Iris. An application for State Government aid for rural schooling, signed by the Wesleyan Minister and others, was made in August 1865, just two months after the church opened, and stated there would be free use of the Chapel. For more information see history.glenirisuniting.org.au. In 1872 the school moved into its new building next door to the Chapel. In September 2015 Glen Iris Primary School will celebrate 150 years of quality education to the children of Glen Iris and surrounds. All past students and families are encouraged to participate.
