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.
