The community of Lavington dates back to the 1850′s. In this decade gold was discovered in the Black Range area. The miners built their homes along the creek bank and on the flats. The estimated population at the time was 2,000.
Following WW1, the area was made available to Soldier Settlement, with fruit growing becoming the main agricultural pursuit. The re-routing of the Hume Highway through Lavington in the early 1930′s and the construction of the Hume Weir were vital employment opportunities during the Depression years. In 1966, Lavington ceased to be a separate village and was amalgamated into the Albury City Council.
The school started with 3 teachers; Sr Ignatious, Pauline McKenzie-McHarg and Denise Hill and was officially blessed and opened on Sunday 30th May, 1971.
Since these early days the student population has steadily grown to over 300. We now boast many wonderful resources and facilities including spacious grounds and many hard court areas that promote team games, co-operation, eye-hand co-ordination and other skills. Our latest acquisition (Feb. 2013), is a wonderful Contemporary Learning Space that encourages and promotes 21st century pedagogy. I encourage you to peruse the photo gallery!
