Colley Hill
Section 19, Hundred of Witera on Eyre Peninsula. Named after R.B. Colley who held an adjacent pastoral lease.
The Colley School was inexplicably opened as "Collie" in 1913; it closed in 1939.

25 May 1912, page 41e:
The two recently established half-time schools, Conglima and Collie [sic], are in the midst of a dense scrub where the settler has much to do in the way of clearing... At Collie the school had only been opened five days and the children, not having attended school before, had all been placed in the junior class. A bright girl of 17 years and 10 months, who was picked out as the best, attempted to read, but failed to do so..
