Maclean Public School

I have always really liked this building and wondered what sort of room was behind the arched window with its beautiful pale blue glass panes, (yes I did grow up watching 'Play School'). 
The two trees out front are Canary Island Date Palms which are very common old style plantings in the Clarence Valley but are shunned by landscapers these days.


  1. Reminds me very much of my old school where the cane ruled and the ruler caned!

  2. I really struggle with palm trees for community plantings. The cabbage tree palm is being reintroduced to the Sydney area with a vengeance, and I struggle with its shape for some reason. Apparently, it was endemic to the area when Phillip established the colony.
