Five Dock, Domremy College

This fence and elaborate gate, an entrance to Domremy College, are located on First Avenue, in the inner west suburb of Five Dock. The Catholic church bought this estate in 1911 and created a private school, administered by the Presentation Order Sisters until 1997. It had developed infants, primary and secondary departments but the the infants and primary departments of the College were phased out. It is now a Catholic girls high school for Years 7 to 12.

  5. So many old schools have become office buildings, it's nice to see they're still using this grand old place. And I do see a spot of yellow to the right of the gate, Jim!
    Nice work, as always.

  7. A role model of institution, probably not only from its architecture.
    Please have a good Tuesday.

  8. I would love to be teaching there. It is a beautiful site. Those girls are fortunate to have such a lovely place to go to for their schooling. I spent many years with the Dominican nuns, but out buildings were dull compared to this. Lovely shot. genie

  11. They don't make fences like that anymore!

    SOMETHING RED

    Something cherry, something blue,
    Something scarlet just for you;
    Something blazing as the sun,
    Something red when day is done.
