There was formerly a school at Lower Towamba, some five miles down the river from Towamba. The building, a one-roomed weatherboard structure measuring 17ft x 14ft cost 63/11/9. The school was opened in 1898 with an enrolment of 19. In February 1912 the building was moved to another site on the other side of the river, on land leased from Mr. Robert Hazelgrove at a peppercorn rental.
From September to December, 1916, the school was closed. It was reopened in January 1917, and finally closed in May, 1917, there being only 10 children.
The building was sold on 18th September, 1920 for 23 and the remaining school equipment taken to Towamba.

* In reply to an inquiry re the appointment of a teacher to the Provisional School at Lower Towamba, we were pleased to learn yesterday through Mr. P. Durie, District Inspector of Schools that the appointment of a female teacher to the school in question has just been made. The delay in getting a teacher for this school has been due to the scarcity of suitable officers for such appointments.
