Notable features

Primary School No. 2365 building is a two storeyed brick structure with cream face brick and stucco dressings on a bluestone plinth. Windows are multi-pane sashes set in pointed arch openings, those on the first floor front having dividing capitals. The roof is slate with ventilators; originally the roof also had finials and cresting. The building is centrally massed as an asymmetrical rectangular block running across the site, with a projecting central section. Separate entrances for boys and girls survive on either side of the main block. There is a polygonal bay office in the south-east front corner. In the centre of the facade is a pair of lancet windows surmounted by an oculi and all set within a lancet frame set beneath a raised gable. A Venetian Gothic effect is given by the polychromatic patterned brickwork immediately beneath the eaves and by the balustrade above constructed of stone and white bricks.
