Nearly 180 years ago, Westbury Primary School opened its doors for the first time.
The school established in 1839 at its existing location on Taylor Street, in a bluestone building.
In October, the school will celebrate its birthday with an open day and is appealing for former students to come forward.
Principal Christine Brown Students said would conduct tours of the school while a commemorative plaque and an art installation would be unveiled by Meander Valley mayor Wayne Johnston.
Students have collaborated with local singer-songwriter Patrick Gambles who will perform the song with students for the first time at the celebrations.
