Statement of Significance

Historic - the Gnowangerup District High School was one of the first schools to open in the district.

Social- was used as a meeting place.

Physical Description

The Gnowangerup State School was opened on 10th November. 1908. Prior to this site being chosen
for the school a site on the northern edge of town had been earmarked for education purposes. The

The school has grown over the years to a District High School with education up to Year 10.
