Hendrik school, Gravenstraat 34
It is not sure whether the building dates from 1885 (Volders, page 47) or from a slightly later period, around the turn of the century (1900). But it definitely is the first building with a firm cornice, behind which a corrugated iron roof only slightly slants down, thus giving the impression of a flat roof. The buildings is 7 bays wide and 3 deep. It has three doors that open to the street with semi-circular skylights topping them. The three stoops in front of the doors changed from semi-circular to rectangular, probably to create more space on the pavement.
At the rear there is a large outdoor stairway, with a landing, leading to the first floor.
In the backyard there are some more school buildings.
