If your John lived in Ellison St and Hood St he'd have went to the nearest school which was the Quay Board School. If he was a RC he'd have went to Aloysius.
St Andrews Church had a School, so that could be a possibility.The pic shows the door with 'Girls' above it and it can just be seen using Google earth.
The similar looking door at the other end used to have 'Boys' above which has been erased by the new owners and a date carved into the stone. Check it on Google earth.
