Once Napiershall Public School, the Napiershall Street Centre is now home to a variety of community groups and other organisations. Admire its many original features and find out how different organisations are re-using the old classrooms to serve the community.
The original design of the school is said to be designed by Robert Alexander Bryden, who is listed within the Dictionary of Scottish Architects. The building, now owned by City Property, is in need of repair. However, it still boasts of much of the original features, such as, the arches, the plaque dedicated to the former headmaster - John B. Freebairn M.A – and a plaque of Queen Victoria. It is clear that what seemed to be a plain building from the outside had a very attractive interior. The building is now hosting tenants who have customised each of the original classrooms into office purpose rooms, and part of the tours organised will include visits to previous classrooms and some of the organisations who are now based there.
Once Napiershall Street School, the Napiershall Street Centre is now home to a variety of community groups and other organisations. The Napiershall Street Centre will be opened to the public from Thursday 13th to Saturday 15th
to visit. During the Door Open Days, there will be an exhibition about the past and present of the building. Guided tours will be delivered at 11am and 3pm on Thursday and Friday; and 3pm on Saturday. Booking is required as community language support is available.
On Saturday 15th, there will be a family event called ‘Fun Food & Fashion’ held in the building from 12noon. The event will have FREE face painting, bouncy castle, smoothie bike, refreshments and swapped items for participants to take home. Everybody welcome.
