My kids go to South, so you'd think I'd know all that stuff! I can check
while I'm there in the next couple of days (too busy after school today). Is
there other information that is of interest too or do you need more photos?
I know my son was involved in a project about past students (they had to
interview people who'd been to South), some time last year. I'm not sure
what ended up happening with the information but I can ask.
Have you looked at the Picture Australia website? I'm pretty sure I've
looked at old photos of the building there and they might well have dates on
Let me know what I can do.

Subject: [GEELONG] South Geelong School No 2143
I'm looking for some information about South Geelong School, situated on the
block bounded by Yarra, Mundy, School & Kilgour streets.
The oldest building on the site appears to be the one closest to the corner
of Yarra and Mundy streets. Does anyone know when this building was built?
According to the records the original school was opened on 1/8/1879 and was
a 2 storey building on the present site.
I took photos of it when I was in Victoria at Easter, but didn't think to
look for a date on it (major fail).
I have emailed the school asking about this, but haven't received a reply
Any help would be very much appreciated.
