  In 1965, the whole school was moved to what used to be the
  St Helena Mine Manager’s Guest House. Grade 1’s were in
  the St Helena Boxing Club and Grade 2’s and 3’s were in
  the house. These grounds are next to the stables.
  The building of the school was in progress.
  On 30 October 1965 Bishop Bill Burnett unveiled the corner stone.
