Arncliffe, public school

Arncliffe Public School is located along the Princes Highway, in the southern suburb of Arncliffe. It was established in 1861 as the West Botany School. This headmaster's residence was built in 1879. The name was changed to Arncliffe Public School in 1885 with later buildings constructed in the early twentieth century.


  1. I love places with lots of history. Nice photo.

  2. It's still pretty but seems a bit small for a public school.

    1. I believe this was the headmaster's house. The school buildings around it are much larger. I will feature one of those school buildings tomorrow.

  3. How interesting and historically significant.

    It throws up multiple imageries of times gone by, and then how it is still being used in the modern day.

    Thanks for sharing with me on #WW, Jim

    Happy weds.

  4. There used to be an old one-room schoolhouse (renovated to become a small home) just a few doors down from us. I loved to imagine what it would be like to be schooled there.

  5. What a great piece of history. I do enjoy learning the history of such old places.
