Originally the site was the local school, which opened in 1921 as a one-roomed school, followed by numerous extensions and expansions, closing in 2000 after having catered for 350 students at its peak operation as a District High School. Until 2003, when the Old School was instituted in its new role as a Community Centre, there was no central facility for community activities. The Old School has taken a range of empty buildings and depleted playing fields and turned them into the nerve centre of the town of Boddington.
From a small start the 'Boddington Old School', now 'Boddington Community Resource Centre' boasts buildings full of activity in the form of offices, TAFE courses, a Youth Centre, and a host of telecommunications and computer facilities. There is a Men's Shed, Morning teas for community, Youth Arts facilities, meeting & training rooms etc, etc.
Now a bustling Community Hub, the centre is recognised as a great place to be part of, and a great place to catch up with others.
