Windsor Public School is located in Christie Street, Windsor, New South Wales.
Windsor Public School in the 1880s
Following a meeting in the Windsor School of Arts on 11 March 1868 an application was made to the New South Wales government for the provision of a public school. The foundation stone was laid by Henry Parkes (later Sir Henry) with a silver trowel. The official opening by Parkes was attended by some 500 people and took place on 21 February 1870. The school remains on its original site and has grown substantially from the initial enrollment of fifty pupils. A marker near the corner of Christie and George Streets records the height of the 1867 flood waters.
