Inscription

Rebuilt .... National Schools 1864

Our research into the history of the school convinces us that the blank section of ribbon must have read "Christ Church" which was the school's new name in 1864.  In 1883 it was taken over by St John's and renamed so during repainting at some point after that it must have been decided to just not pick out the old name. It does look odd.
