Appraisal

This building forms part of an interesting group of related structures with the convent to the north-west and with the primary school associated with the convent to the south-east. These buildings are part of a broader group of Roman Catholic related structures with the church and presbytery located to the south-east. This school building is representative of educational design at that time and is enhanced by the retention of notable features and materials, such as the cast-iron hoppers, slate roofs, timber doors and wrought-iron railings.
