Subject notes
Bonnybridge Public School was opened in March 1876 as a single storey building. It was built on made up ground into which piles had to be driven for foundations. The cottage was for the janitor. Built to accommodate 300 pupils, it was soon overcrowded. A second storey was added in 1891. It ceased to be a school in the 1960s.
