In June 1905, a meeting was called at Glass Mountains for the purpose of getting a school established in the area. Some difference of opinion had arisen as to the site for the school but eventually Mr W Burgess selected the present excellent site.
An application was forwarded to the Department of Public Instruction and this was signed by: Chas J. Ferris, T. McCosker, W. A. Reed, W. F. Fanning, E. A. Streek, Mrs. I. Powell, A. King, W. Roberts, J. McCosker, Bertie E. Smith, W. S. Burgess, E. W. Smith, J. Atkins and T. Powell.
A final list of proposed pupils was approved and tenders for the building were called on 14 December, 1905. W. Sanderson’s tender of £ 96.15.0 was recommended for acceptance.
On 26 March 1906, the Inspector of Works reported that the school was ready for occupation and Miss Gertrude Letitia Corkran was appointed Head Teacher as from 17 April, 1906. The school number was to be 1095.
The nine first day scholars were, Wilfred Hare, Albert Hare, James Hare, John Dalton, Arthur Reed, Owen Reed, Evelyn Dalton, Lilian Dalton, and Alice Hare.
On 3 May 1906 the average attendance was 8, and the Committee was informed:
“In the present condition of the finance of the State, Provisional Schools cannot be continued where the average attendance has fallen below 13, and, by direction of the Minister I have the honour to request the Committee to be good enough to show cause why the School at Glass Mountains should not be closed on account of the smallness of the attendance.”
However as the attendance rose, the school remained open until 25 April, 1907 when the teacher was transferred away and the school closed.
