    1930 to 2005. The Old School Building.

    In May 1930, the school moved into a new school building on Sandygate, the land was donated by the Wade family (who lived in what is now The Glasshouse) and which was to be held in perpetuity for educational purposes. The school is blessed with grounds and playing fields that extend over 28 hectares.

    • A photo of the school from 1948. 8 years before the building underwent a large scale expansion with the addition of a new hall and additional blocks near Festival Road.
