Moreover, one family emigrated to Hungary in 1858.  Regarding school education in Westerloh, it is worth mentioning that bright children attended schools in Haseluenne in 1824. Later, a son of landowner Renzen taught the children. He was probably Westerloh's first teacher. In 1828 teacher Schuhmacher, who was from Westerloh as well, became his successor. After his marriage he lived in a flat in an old sheep pen. At that time the community built its first schoolhouse, a half-timbered building.
The school chronicle reports that a new schoolhouse was opened on January 8, 1936. In that year the school had 58 students, 34 girls and 24 boys. Due to the arrival of refugees after the Second World War, the number of students increased significantly. In 1946 the school counted 82 students.

Due to centralization efforts students in their seventh, eighth and ninth year attended school in Berssen from 1963 on. Since 1965 children in class seven and higher have attended school in Haseluenne. In 1979, two school years (class 5 and 6) were introduced in order to find out each student's orientation for his future school career. 16 children from Westerloh attended this so-called "Orientierungsstufe" in Haseluenne.
