Design Characteristics

  • In the shadow of the grand old 1916 school, King George V elementary, a new smaller school,opened in 1952. King George Elementary 2 is a single-storey cottage-style school cost which $132,232. It featured seven classrooms and a gymnasium.
  • Little has changed over the ensuing years on the exterior so the small building has good integrity with its windows, doors and wall finishes.
  • While not technically 'modern' by its brick construction, the design falls well within variations for the period and has seen remarkably little change.
