Collie Senior High School is a comprehensive public high school located in Collie, a regional centre 213 kilometres south of Perth, Western Australia. The first school in Collie was opened in 1899, when the name of the town was still Coalville.

According to the book, “One Day in Collie”, the Colliefields Hotel was the first hotel to be built in Collie and was established by Mr Tom Carrig.  It was originally “built on the wrong site and consisted of a small iron and weatherboard construction, adequate only for the erection of a bar and for dispensing drinks, but containing what was regarded as a necessary accompaniment to a hotel – a billiard table.”  We have been told by the WA Heritage Commission that the hotel was started in the tent across the road from the current site, we assume while they were building the original hotel building.  We’re still learning the history of what was a grand old building and if you have any information or pictures of the hotel, we’d love to see them and learn more.

“One Day in Collie” states that, “The first ‘civic’ meeting was an impromptu affair in 1897.  Mr Tom Carrig, sitting outside his tent watching the two carpenters who were constructing his hotel ‘The Colliefields’, no doubt in pensive mood, called to order a meeting of the ‘First Progress Association’.  Tom outlined his progressive ideas – one of the carpenters moved a proposition accordingly, unanimously.”  It goes on later to say that “The first civic institution initiated and operated as a local body was the Coalfield Progress Committee.  It began on a more official premise than Tom Carrig’s earlier motivations, but was noticeably held at the same venue, the Colliefields Hotel.  A public meeting held there in 1898 determined that a body of twelve persons should be elected to make up the Committee, with eighteen nominations immediately submitted.”

The hotel has played a strong role in Collie’s history and many other firsts, originated at or from outside the front of the Colliefields.  For instance, the  first recorded meeting of the Salvation Army was held outside the Colliefields Hotel in 1897.

The hotel was expanded as seen in this picture of the hotel while under the management of Mr F.W. Crowe.

On March 25 1902 there was a disastrous fire, which razed the building to the ground.  Mr A Krakouer was the lessee at the time.  According to The West Australian, the hotel “was the first structure of any pretensions to be erected in the town.” and “Had it not been that there was no wind at the time, nothing would have prevented the adjoining block of buildings from being totally destroyed.”
The new building was magnificent as you can see from this picture, which is of the first hunt meeting outside the Colliefields Hotel.

We have been told that some of the ballustrading was only sold about two years prior to our renovations commencing.  Do you know where it is?  We’d love to be able to get even a small piece of it or a cast of it as we are hoping to reinstate these balconies in future stages of our renovations.

Destruction between the Crown and the Colliefields
On the Saturday evening of May 22 1909, at Smith’s Tailoring establishment, an even worse fire struck Throssell Street.  The West Australian printed that “Owing to the poor pressure of water, the brigade was unable to stay the progress of the fire, which in less than an  hour destroyed the building in which it had originated and also the five adjoining shops, occupied by G.W. Hartley, grocer; C. F. Bond, chemist; R. Waters, baker and confectioner; Glariss, fishmonger; and E. Reynoldson, furniture dealer and ironmonger.”

The article goes on to say that “In the meantime, the next shops, occupied by E. Watts, newsagent, and the Ezywalkin Boot Company, were pulled down to prevent the fire spreading further.”  This picture shows the side of the Colliefields Hotel, with all the buildings between it and the Crown totally destroyed.
