These were housed in the present school building (main) till they were moved to their current location at Museum Road in Richmond Town.
The school is situated on top of St. John’s Hill with Coles Park on one side and St. Francis Xavier’s Cathedral on the other. The main entrance to the school used to be on St. John’s Church Road and provided direct entry to the playground. The gate was closed and the main entrance re-located in 1976 to Promenade Road so that the playground provided unfettered access for play and recreation.
