This school was burnt down in 1939 bush fire. School was subsequently held on the verandah of the Noojee Hotel.

My great grandfather William Ernest Harrison owned a saw mill in the Loch Valley area of Noojee. As family history tells, William provided the timber for the first school to be built and the first school teacher boarded with the family.The family photo album has a photo of "the first school" with the students in front of it. An elderly gentleman from Noojee told me in 2012 that the photo was actually the Loch Valley Hall which was used as a school until the first school was built. If anyone has any information that would calrify our story I would love to hear from you.
