Kathryn Watkins will provide a glimpse of schooling from the past and conduct a tour of the NSW Schoolhouse Museum of Public Education.

The NSW Schoolhouse Museum was the first building of North Ryde Public School. The original schoolroom was built in 1877 for 45 pupils with extra rooms built in 1883 and 1910. The museum is housed in restored early schoolrooms and collects and preserves objects relating to the history of public education in NSW.

The NSW Schoolhouse Museum is located on Cox’s Road, North Ryde in the north-eastern corner of the grounds of North Ryde Public School (almost opposite Cox’s Road Mall). A car park is located behind the Schoolhouse Museum.
