Exeter Primary School

Exeter’s long and fascinating history began when a school was first opened in 1909 on land that was once an orchard. In 1939 schools from Legana, West Glengarry, Swan Point, Winkleigh and Sidmouth were relocated to the Exeter site. The main brick building was built then and opened by the Hon. E.J. Ogilvie in 1940. The newer brick section including the hall (now gym) was opened in 1954. The school population grew with the addition of two grades 3 and 4 blocks, two kindergartens and 17 terrapin temporary buildings. The District High School reached a maximum population of approximately 960 students before the secondary classes moved to the new Exeter High School site in 1985. Major redevelopment was undertaken in 1992-1994 and again in 2010-2011.
