Just so there's some idea out there of what I'm doing - this is proceeding as quickly as I can make it, I am doing the state schools by region, and the private schools focussing initially on the Catholic ones only, then filling out the rest. I'm using eddept for state, and a Government Gazette entry on 6 February 2009 for the rest. It'll be some time before this list is complete. Orderinchaos 18:30, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

I completed the above a while ago, what I've been doing since is using both the Rikkers book, any government sources I can find and more recently the annual Education Circulars to work out the closing dates of schools. There's still more than 100 defunct state schools to enter, and I have no idea what to do with the private ones. A couple of new users have been very helpful with some of the more obscure history - it's less names I have to look up every time I'm at the Battye, so I'm grateful for the assistance :) Orderinchaos 17:07, 10 February 2010 (UTC)


I'll put some here that I don't know what to do about.

  1. Sheoak Primary School, 1927–1952 (any idea where it was located?)
  2. Bradleys Primary School, 1926-1960s (as above)
  3. Rathmines Primary School, 1927-? (as above. East Bunbury (the suburb) was known as Rathmines but this could be a false positive)

Private schools (need opening dates and confirmation of closing dates)

  1. Kellerberrin - St. Joseph's School (last appears in ES list 1976) K-10
  2. Norseman — Sacred Heart School. (last appears in ES list 1972) K-10
  3. Toodyay — St. Aloysius's School. (last appears in ES list 1971) K-10
  4. Wagin — St. Joseph's School. (last appears in ES list 1971) K-10
