The school hall was erected to commemorate the Centenary of St Michael`s Church from 1836 to 1936. The foundation stone for the hall was unveiled on 3rd May 1936 and was officially opened on the 16th August 1936.

On Saturday and Monday, members of the St. Michael's Lutheran Church at Hahndorf met to prepare the grounds of the new Centenary school hall, for the opening ceremony on August 16. The opening will be performed by the president of the South Australian District (the Rev. Hoopmann). About thirty volunteers were present and about half a dozen motor lorries carted gravel. A piping fence was erected and flower gardens prepared. The first shrubs were planted by Mrs. C. G. Zadow. The Saturday school will be opened on August 22. Quite a number of people have intimated their intention of sending their children.
