Note1887In 1887 Edward Sheather Snr wrote an application requesting a school be built at Native Dog Creek. He applied himself to this task and the school was finally built by October 1888. Many of his grandchildren (I'm told there were 50) attended the school, and other pupils later married into this family (Metcalf, Elphick, Makeham, Williams, Fields, Worldon and Bell).

     The school children in this remote country area of Nangus had many challenges. The boys were needed to help on the land and, owing to the rough terrain and flooding of local creeks, it was impossible for the children to attend school on a regular basis.

     On 4th November 1887, Edward Sheather, owner of the Nangus Hotel, sent an application to the Under Secretary, Department of Public Instruction, Sydney. He requested that a school be built at Native Dog Creek. He wrote the letter on behalf of the residents at Native Dog Creek, Nangus near Gundagai.

     The annex to the application lists Edward Shether Jnr and his wife Jane and children William Henry and George Alfred (twins) 14, Edward John 12, Clara Ann 10, Amy May 6, Albert Ernest 4. They lived two miles from the proposed school whereas the closest school was 6 miles away, quite a distance for the children to travel in those days. A site was to be obtained on Government Road on the Kimo side of Native Dog Creek.

     George & Ann Sheather, children Minnie Jane 12, Amelia Mary 10, Eliza Ellen 8, Edith May 6, and Amy Isabel 4, were also listed on the annex to the application form.

     George Lyell, teacher of the Public School at Nangus, details his objections to the new school and his concern that his own school would be closed for lack of students. His report gives us insights into Edward and Jane's family life. Their twin sons William and Henry attended school on an average of one week per quarter over a period of two years, he writes, "..the parents consider the boys work on the farm of far more importance than their education.." which was not unusual for those times when the family made their living from the land. Edward, Clara, Amy, and Eliza Sheather were permanent residents and likely to be pupils. "..If a school were established at the proposed locality, Nangus Public School must collapse. As for the dangerous creeks that prevent children from attending the existing school, there is one water channel or gully which is a torrent in heavy rains never continuing to flow for more than an hour or so after the rain ceases. Parents in the country districts rarely send their children to school on a wet day. I cannot see the wisdom of establishing the proposed school at Native Dog Creek. I therefore recommend that the inhabitants be refused their request..".

     In February 1888, Edward wrote mentioning his annoyance at the delay by the Department in making a decision.

     "Your communication of the 17/11/87 was duly received stating the establishment of a provisional school at Native Dog Creek Nangus was under consideration.

     "We have heard nothing further in the matter and feel considerably annoyed at such delay.

     "Our children are growing wild untutored and ignorant simply for the want of a school where they can receive that training they are duly entitled to.

     "The old saying 'while the grass is growing the steed is starving' is applicable in our case.

     Will you have the goodness at once attend to this matter as it is quite time our ..... application for a school was attended to.

     "I have the honour to be your obedient servant

     "Edward Sheather Snr."

     The inspector was swayed by the teacher's report and without visiting the location, agreed with George Lyell that there was no case for establishing a school. He requested the application be denied. A reply to this letter pointed out to the inspector that he had disregarded paragraph 6 on the form he submitted. So the case couldn't be settled in the way he recommended. The inspector had to be "on the spot to make a decision". This meant that he had to go to the area and check out the terrain himself which he did, and on the 7th May 1888 he wrote "..on personal examination of the country I find that it is nearly impossible for the children residing at Native Dog Creek to attend Nangus School. The late teacher misled me somewhat...".

     What a victory for the local people when the next day they received word that the application had been successful, and the Committee members would be Edward Sheather, J Hudson and George Fuller. The Chief Inspector recommended £45 be granted for the erection and furnishing of a school house.

     A request for a local resident to point out the exact site for the school to the surveyor was made. He received a reply ".. Mr Sheather will be glad to point out the site to the Surveyor, he will also point out the exact spot on the reserve wich is required fo rthe School. I am unable to give a sketch, I submit that it is not required...".

     Five months later, Edward informed the authority that the School building at Kimo was completed. The building was weatherboard, floored, and roofed with iron, it had a brick chimney, light and ventilation. The prescribed amount of furniture had been supplied. There were two good W.C.s and the residents had given the building two coats of paint.

     Mrs E Sheather Jnr applied for exemption from payment for school fees of 2/3. Her reason being that they could not afford to pay because everything they had had been destroyed by fire. What hardship the family must have suffered at this time. The request was approved. (It is interesting to note that fees were payable at public schools back then.)
