The Oaks Convent opened in 1906 for the Sisters of St. Joseph. It was designed by Camden builder, G. Furner, and built by local builders, J. Devitt & A. Roberts.
Until 1964, the Convent accommodated 14 girls as boarders. Together with day pupils, they were taught in the school house next door and learned music, drama and shorthand in addition to the usual lessons.
It closed as a school in 1965 and is now home for the incumbent priest.
