Anniedale School

Pioneer school made learning ‘come alive’

It is our hope that this surviving one-room school will once again to educate about the past.

We would like to voice our support for the Surrey Historical Society’s efforts to relocate and preserve the original Anniedale School (right).

As former Surrey educators, we remember the pioneer school programs which were available at Anniedale. Learning “came alive” for thousands of students as they spent a day in a one-room schoolhouse and experienced first-hand what it would have been like to attend school in Surrey’s early days.

It is our hope that this surviving one-room school will once again be used to offer members of the community and visitors alike a “snapshot” of a very important part of daily life in Surrey’s past.
