Centenary Celebrations


School History

 

The name Dhurringile comes from the Yorta Yorta word for crouching emu. There is a hill nearby which looks like a crouching emu, so the Dhurringile name was born!


‚ÄčThe school was opened in 1917, after the school building was brought from Yalca East State School and re-erected here at Dhurringile.

Memories


Students who rode their horses to school left them in the horse paddock, which is now where the boardwalk is.
