GRIFFITH Public School officially opened their doors for the first time on June 7, 1920 to a total of 96 students from across the state.
Now, 100 years on and with a slight delay courtesy of coronavirus, the teaching team at Griffith Public are excited to be hosting their centenary celebrations.
There will be memorabilia on display, merchandise for sale, school and classroom tours, performances from ex-students and plenty of food and drink available.
"I'm just really proud to show off our school," teacher Helen Lander said.
"It's exciting to see how far we've come in 100 years.
"People who didn't like school when they were younger can now see how much school has changed, and they'd probably love to come to school now."
Assistant principal and fellow teacher, Patricia Campbell, has been burning the midnight oil to release a book filled with mementos, photos and historical facts from the past century.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase on the day.
"After having invested so much time looking into the archives and the history, I'm looking forward to having people look at the book and say 'really, I didn't know that'," Ms Campbell said.
"I'm really looking forward to wallowing in that history."
The occasion is sure to be a nostalgia-fueled trip down memory lane, with the uncovering of a time capsule, the youngest student meeting Griffith Public's oldest in the cake cutting, and previous school captains planting rose bushes.
Celebrations will be held on October 4 from 10am to 4pm.
