History about our School House

Rimu Cottage (known as the ‘Whare’ or ‘Warry’) was built around 1915 for the Nees family. Amy and Albert Nees, along with son Ken, lived in the Whare until the main house was built several years later. The cottage was used for farm workers and shearers accommodation, and in later years for storage.
Angela Woolf moved it to 10 Church Lane, Wairau and they restored it. She said one window was open for a long time and birds and rats were living in the building.
They sold the property to Stacey Dight. Stacey sold the building to us.

Our aim is to create a school house from around the early 1900s. We will allow schools to come and have a lesson as they would of had 100 years ago. Our teacher is "Miss Baigent". And our school will be running every first Sunday in the month (September - May) 10am - 3pm

   
1.9.2019 The first school lesson at Willow Bank Village School starts with the sound of the bell.
