This small four level school building was constructed in 1907 on land outside the boundary of the City of Victoria, on the eastern side of Happy Valley Racecourse. It is now surrounded by the high rise residential blocks which face towards the open space of the Racecourse across Wong Nai Chung Road. The Primary school is run by the Roman Catholic Congregation of the Sisters of St Paul de Chartres, and is adjacent to St Paul’s Secondary School.
