Hi Tommy, went into the photo gallery, it was great. Never heard of two churches up where the present one is. Do you know when they were there, also have you any idea when the girls school was built. Trying to figure it out, but only remember walking up clarke hill and thinking it was miles away.
I can’t remember the exact date when the girl’s school opened, but I do remember the day that all the girls marched out of the old boy’s school and up the road to our bran new school. Having indoor toilets a cookery kitchen and an assembly hall was very exciting
So when was the "new" girls school built? I remember been down in the boys school years ago, when I was still going to the girls school, I think. And always thought the boys school was so much newer than the girls, it was real warm down there and they had carpet on the floors, not like ours. Ha. At the time. Don't know what it's like now.

Hi Matt, Bottom of the hill at the Wes 1872 there could be another, Brendan could be right with the school. Can anyone confirm that one. The old water station by the rugby club ( McDonalds Home) is close but not as old Tommy H

Teresap, The two churches were St Bridgets and St Pauls either side of the clock tower and were in E anf F Lines the only lines left are K Lines by the Golf Club. These churches were built ( I think ) around the time the clock tower was. St Bridgets was on the site of the girls school and St pauls where the church is now.
