Artist's Description

Beautiful old school beautifully built and my youngest daughter was a pupil there…
Williamstown Primary School is one of the oldest government schools in Victoria, being established in 1873. It was originally housed in the Mechanics’ Institute in nearby Electra Street. The bluestone building, designed by Henry Bastow and opened in 1878, is considered to be one of the finest examples of Gothic inspired school architecture of its period and is classified by Heritage Victoria. The red brick junior school building, designed by George Watson, was opened in 1906. It also is of architectural significance as an early example of Federation Queen Anne applied to education architecture.

Williamstown Primary School is a school that retains its sense of history, whilst educating its students for life in the 21st century. A building master plan is been implemented with stage one being completed in 2005. This comprises two buildings: a hall and music room, and a library and art room.

Stage two was completed in early 2008 with the construction of a new administration building and the refurbishment of the original 1878 school building. The school has a number of sustainable gardens. The school is also greatly improving all its playground facilities, with a new prep playground and the installation of synthetic grass 2008. There are also plans to improve all the other playground equipment. Stage three of the building program, the restoration of the redbrick 1906 building, was completed in 2011.
