In 1911 a group of residents of Bylong Upper applied for a Provisional School to be established in the locality. This group included James Gettens, "Harley Hill", John Walker,."Glenroy", Paul Ribaux,"Helvetia", John Grace and William Thorpe. Their application was approved in June, 1911 by the Minister for Education.

The Department of Education called for tenders for the erection of a suitable building. The successful tenderer was Mr. L. O. Taylor, who erected the school building early in 1912 at a cost of f.:193/0/0.

The School Board, representing the parents, requested a particular teacher, Mr. Stanley Bisley.

"We the parents concerned do hereby beg that you will cause Mr. Stanley M. Bisley (now of Mount Drysdale Public School) to be appointed as teacher to this school. While some of our children were attending the Tryalion Subsidised School under Mr. Bisley they made wonderfully good progress and if your Department can arrange for Mr. Bisley's appointment to this school we will be ever grateful."

The Department was able to appoint Stanley Bisley to the school, in May, 1912.
