Description
In 1903 this school was rebuilt and the new building opened with 4 large rooms and 42 pupils per teacher with 168 students in total.
In 1911 the school name was changed to Connaugh named after The Duke Of Connaugh. During this time period it was common to name institutions after British Monarchs.
The Connaugh school was in use until 1961 when pupils where moved to the facility on Peel Street Collingwood which would house a capacity of 225 students.

TheGirlNextDoor:
Completely fenced and gated with squeeze through room, it just was not the right day to pass. Entry does not seem possible from behind the chain links. Maybe a closer look would prove access. Plans to reuse the school stand as per developers. Heritage will be respected and the building adapted into seven condominiums. The remaining land will hold 12 town houses.

I GOT IN! I was there on the weekend and found a way in! I will be posting photos as soon as I can, although there isn't much left in there... It is a three story building plus a basement and the upper staircase is completely gone... Unless you are okay with a very sketchy way to the top I wouldn't bother. The basement was the creepiest... flooded in some spots and I gave myself the creeps a cou

Found some info on another website that indicated city of Collingwood took it over in 1969 and made additions to it through the 70s. Was Collingwood Fitness Centre for a time.
