Description
Merryvale Provisional School originally opened as St John's Creek Provisional School 22 May 1889 with the transfer of its first Head Teacher, Andrew Doyle, on 22 May 1889. The school was originally held in a room that had been part of a hotel, until a school building was obtained. Temporarily closing in the second half of 1890 due to an outbreak of diptheria and a child dying, St John's Creek Provisional School reopened at the beginning of 1891. The school underwent a name-change to Merryvale Provisional School in 1894, closing again on 23 September 1904 due to small attendances. Merryvale Provisional School reopened 5 March 1906 after undergoing another name-change to Franklyn Vale Provisional School, with Evelyn Esther Martin remaining as the teacher at the school. On 1 January 1909, Franklyn Vale was proclaimed a State School. Franklyn Vale State School closed 17 June 1915 due to low attendance, and its last teacher, Pearl Lillian Armstrong, was transferred on that date to Derrymore. On 15 May 1922, Merryvale reopened as a State School with a new school number, "1764", and closed permanently 16 June 1961 due to low attendance. The school number ("584") that St John's Creek, Merryvale, and Franklyn Vale, had originally been given, was passed on to Ana Branch State School, which opened in 1919.
