Victorian Domestic Architecture: Teluba
It is owned by the NSW Department of Education who use it as a professional services centre/district office. It shares the grounds of Arncliffe Public School.
As late as 1973 it was the Arncliffe Girls Intermediate High School, meaning it was not a full academic high school. Prior to that it was Arncliffe Domestic Science School. In 1974, it amalgamated with Tempe Boys' Junior Technical High to form a comprehensive, co-ed full high school at Tempe.
I remember when that merge too place, as I was at high school and our school donated old books to the newly created school. Some act of noblesse oblige no doubt, but I wonder what the kids at Tempe thought about a library stocked not with new books, but the cast-offs and donations from some snooty nosed kids from a selective school! I hope they've been culled by now!
