North Wagga Public School is celebrating its "proud history" as some students are following in the footsteps of family members who graced the school halls years prior.
Year 6 student Bailey Crane, 11, said he feels "pretty good" carrying on the tradition of his family.
"My grandma, mum and her brothers and sisters came here and now me and my sister and two brothers," he said.
School captain Melanie Philpott said her grandparents and mum as well as her two older sisters have all attended NWPS.
School principal Trudy Standley said there are third and fourth generations of families attending the school since 1881.
"Families date back to when the school first opened and kids present or enrolled today that are the third or fourth generation, which is amazing," Mrs Standley said.
"It's something the children are proud of and certainly their parents make a point of mentioning that to them.
"For the kids we have here today, their grandparents are really proud and involved."
Mrs Standley said there are some good "leadership genes" as the school captains board shows that a lot of current leaders' parents and grandparents also held that title.
