Dandenong North Primary (State) School, 117-125 Cleeland St, Dandenong, 1971 .

Originally constructed in 1955, This school like a lot ha seen recent redevelopment. The old building were an example of the "Light Timber Construction" design developed in the 1950's by the Public Works Department in Victoria. As the State Government struggled to build enough schools following WW2, the uniform nature of the design meant that hundreds of schools of almost uniform design could be built in a cost-effective and speedy manner.
Finding exciting history on this local school has proved to be a challenge, so were hoping you, our enthusiastic readers, can help shed some light on the history of this school to help us compile a better description here.
