Appraisal

This former girls school exhibits an interesting architectural design, and retains some of the original external features. The setting of the building is enhanced by the limestone kerbs which the veranda columns are set on. This former school was designed as part of the planned estate village of Moynalty in the 1820s, and is similar in execution and detailing to many of the buildings in the village. The boys school is located at the west end of the village.
