Posted on

Open Day to celebrate “Back to School (2828)” by inviting not just the public, but also all past students and teachers to gather and reminisce about their school days.  Draw on the blackboard  and view the displays.  We will be conducting tours of the award winning gardens that have been developed around this magnificent heritage listed school building that is re-born to provide the recreational needs of village residents.  There will be the opportunity to tour the village units and by doing so appreciate the asset provided to the community of Maryborough.

Refreshments will be served on Saturday 27th October 10am to 4pm.  For those who cannot attend on the day.  the Schoolhouse will be open for tours by appointment on Sunday.

The village is very excited as we have just announced the next stage of development. We  have 4 different floor plans to choose from, one of which is a new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom plus study unit. It only takes $1000 to reserve one of these units, choose your colours and then be given time to sell your home. Click here to view our property page.

Village Life in Photos

There have been many enjoyable activities at the School house over this past year.  New residents moving in and joining our very personal and friendly village.  Just some of the activities have been excursions to various venues for lunches, Casserole lunch, the improvement and expansion of our library which is now receiving very frequent patronage.

We have also had a Petanque Pist built near the deck and it is very pleasant having a wine as the ladies compete with the men.  It is very popular.  The residents committee has been very active and held forums with the rest of the residents to formulate goals and prioritise what the village wishes to achieve in both the short and longer term.  A Rotunda and extra BBQ area is presently under construction set in the beautiful gardens along the stream many village men assisted in the project.

I am sure you have heard the term “a picture paints a thousand words” if you wish to experience this Click Here

Christmas in July 2016

Posted on

We had a wonderful day firstly preparing the food and decorating the tables, for our Christmas in July luncheon.  Residents supplied prizes for the raffles and everyone became involved in  the organisation of the day.  The luncheon continued into the early evening and finished with Happy Hour.

As a result, it we have decided to have more “communal meals” whereby the residents themselves will organise the purchase, preparation and the cooking of a wide variety of meals that are put on for their benefit at minimal cost. Our residents are certainly well fed, with many social gatherings to local restaurants and hotels in the town and wider district to sample the culinary delights of Central Victoria.

Our residents enjoyed the Melbourne cup luncheon and afternoon tea, whilst watching the race in the Schoolhouse.

Girls Night In

Posted on

The school house supports many community groups and health issues fundraising. Such as “Girls night in “ for Breast Cancer research. We had a clothes swap evening followed by an auction which proved to be very amusing. The princess of the night was crowned and all who attended had a wonderful time. Biggest morning teas have also be held, many of these types of events are supported by local community clubs such as the CWA and Red Cross that meet in the School House.

Village Garden Awards

Posted on

The magnificent extensive gardens at the village have received two major garden awards 2 years in a row. As a result of the news spreading, we have been approached and have hosted many garden clubs that come to see the gardens and spend time in the magnificent historic School House building. These clubs are coming from far and wide to experience the ambience of the gardens that would rival anything in Central Victoria.

Australia Day

Australia Day was a big hit at Maryborough Schoolhouse Village. We cooked an Australian themed feast enjoyed by all. We had ‘sangas’, ‘footy franks’, Anzac biscuits, plenty of beer and more.
