Barrengarry School visit Dec 2019

The Kangaroo Valley Historical Society organised a ‘back to Barrengarry School’ hosted by Paul and Libby Turnock. Some former students from Barrengarry School (1874-1942) and family made a trip to visit their old school and related stories of that time. The School building is a Horbury Hunt design and has been maintained in its original format.
