History

Physical appearance

"The Avonlea school was a whitewashed building, low in the eaves and wide in the windows, furnished inside with comfortable substantial old-fashioned desks that opened and shut, and were carved all over their lids with the initials and hieroglyphics of three generations of school children. The schoolhouse was set back from the road and behind it was a dusky fir wood and a brook where all the children put their bottles of milk in the morning to keep cool and sweet until dinner hour."
Anne of Green Gables, Chapter 15[src]

Trivia

  • In the English version, Muriel Stacy was the first female teacher at Avonlea school and Diana Barry was named by a schoolmaster boarding at Orchard Slope at the time of her birth. In the German version of Anne of Green Gables, there was a female teacher named Diana and the baby girl was named after her.
"Aber als Diana geboren wurde, unterrichtete an der Schule gerade eine Lehrerin, die so hieß, und nach der haben sie die Kleine benannt."
Matthew Cuthbert[src]
