History The school was built in the 1930s as a girls' secondary school and was occupied by the Girls' Grammar School until it moved in 1952. It continued as a secondary school but was eventually phased out and Fleetville School took over the premises in September 1975. The buildings were extensively remodelled to suit the needs of a primary school. They include an assembly hall with stage and stage lighting, teaching rooms, group rooms, library, music rooms, gymnasium and dining hall. The grounds adjoining the school include netball courts, hard play areas and a large playing field. The grounds are pleasantly laid out with trees, shrubs, flowerbeds and seating. Recently, the installation of a range of playground equipment has been funded by the PTA and friends.
