Through the Years – The 70’s

1973 – Duke Street Community House Inception
The Duke Street Community House Assoc. Inc (formerly the Tottenham Technical Schoolhouse) was established in 1973.

The development of the house was slow because of the difficulty in obtaining funding and the complexities encountered supporting a new and innovative project.

During 1974, steps were taken to formalise the establishment of 27 Duke Street as a Community House

The Education Department leased the house at 27 Duke Street from Sunshine Council and work began to adapt the facilities so that classes could be held.

Initially teachers and the Coordinator went door knocking to explain to parents the purpose of the community house and the advantages it would provide for students, the school and the area.
