It’s doubtful Errol attended this Christian Brothers “College”, but, if he did, it would not have been for long!

“St Patrick’s College was built towards the end of the First World War and dedicated in 1918. It opened for boys in 1919. The architect for the building was Mr A Harold Masters and the builders were Hinman, Wright and Manser. The style is typical of the Federation era and is known as ‘blood and bandages’ (note the bands of bricks and ‘plastered’ bands flowing from the windows). The cost was a little over £10,000 pounds.

The Christian Brothers taught boys from Grade 3 through to Leaving and Matriculation class. (Now Grade 12).”

— Gentleman Tim
