I remember those huts they were junior 2 and junior 4.

The top hut was heated by coke stoves in the corners and had the school library in a small room at the back. The bottom hut had the headmaster's office at the back. I remember the main school building had a magneto phone, when a call came through for the headmaster you had to turn an handle on the magneto box to ring the extension bell in the headmaster's office, sounds quaint now!
