St Clare School

Located at Bruce & Shepard, the St Clare School was designed by Windsor architect Gilbert J P Jacques & Co., and opened in 1922. By the late 1960s the Separate School board was looking at options to either renovate or replace the old school building.

After a lot of back and forth, it was decided that the building would be replaced, with a new one storey school designed by J P Thomson to be built behind it, and the old school to be demolished.

Time ran out for the old school and it was demolished in the summer of 1970, replaced by a modern building. The replacement building still stands, and is today home to the An-Noor Private School.

Did you attend St Clare School? Any Memories of the place?
