Kobeelya School Museum
Kobeelya and Kobeelya Penrhos school collections are in the Coach House at Kobeelya on the grounds of the Katanning Baptist Church and Conference Centre. The Kobeelya Church of England Girls’ School opened in 1922 at ‘Kobeelya’ the former residence of the Honourable Fredrick Henry Piesse. The museum reflects the changes in education and curriculum, society values and fashion over sixty years. The school was the only school in WA to have a registered Pony Club with horses and stables on site. There are five themed rooms, and you can even step into a dormitory and get a sense of what daily life was like for the boarders.
