The plaque presented by the Shire of Winchelsea commemorates the centenary of the Winchelsea School No 2015 from 1878 to 1978.

The centenary of the school was celebrated on the 7th & 8th April 1978.

The Church of England conducted the first Winchelsea School in 1854. This school was No. 659 Winchelsea and was the forerunner of the State School No 2015. An opposition school operated in the Wesleyan Chapel in the period 1868-1878. After the completion of the new building as requested from the Department by the Board Advice No. 283, the State School No 2015 was officially opened on the 1st of March 1878 by the Governor of Victoria.
