B Block - Hambledon State School
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

The building's long history and evolution from a small single room school to its present incorporation into a double story building, with two classrooms and attached office, is of historical significance. It relates the growing and changing needs of what was simply a locality, through a period when the township started to evolve into what is now- part of a larger conurbation spreading along the coast south from Cairns. The fact that the building is now an almost outmoded part of the present day school portrays how the education needs of the community evolved to require a complex of buildings and shaded play areas.
