The Nangunia South School was established in April 1899 as a provisional school made of logs, joined together by mud. The school was located opposite the site (Northern side) of the Nangunia Hotel and Post Office (one building) which was destroyed by fire in 1903. Therefore the school was situated where the Mulwala Canal is today.
The Education Department built a proper school there in 1908 but with the dwindling of numbers the school then became a half time school in 1912, sharing with Nangunia School, and was then closed two years later with the building being moved to Nangunia and operating there until 1932.
