Now a community resource centre, this Victorian building was constructed as boys and girls national schools in 1895-97. The five part composition has a central breakfront with decorative terracotta trim and a central cupola. The two wings with their curvilinear gables are joined to the central block by a three bay block with red brick dressing to offset the yellow brick.
