The first stage of the Old Hartley Street School comprised two classrooms in a rectangular-shaped building constructed in 1930. Construction was of blockwork walls on a concrete slab, with sawn-timber roof framing and corrugated galvanised iron roof sheeting.
In 1945, the building was extended to the north with an octagonal-shaped kindergarten room and an additional classroom. These additions were made using a patterned concrete block matching several other institutional buildings in the town, such as the Post Office.
Today the building’s 1945 extension houses the Hartley Street School Museum, whilst the original classrooms are leased out as offices.
WHY ISN’T THE GOOD ACCESS BADGE TURNED ON?
Some listings are here because we think they’re pretty cool and you should know about them! And some, we just haven’t quite got enough info to make the ‘Good Access’ call yet.. so to answer the question, a business could be listed on our site if:
A. The business indicates they have some accessible facilities, but we haven’t quite gotten around to chatting through the details, stay tuned! If you’ve been here, leave a review and let us know about your experience!
B. We have spoken to their team.. the facilities aren’t quite what we’d call accessible BUT we’ve provided you with ‘good to know’ tips in case you’re keen to give it a go anyway!
