Long Description:
Unfortunately there isn't much information available about this interesting former school. All it could be found is that it was deactivated by the time the Funcho's dam was built. That was 1993. It would be shutdown anyway, as it happen with so many schools which used to be active in areas which became desertified as their inhabitants migrated to towns and cities.

It's possible to drive any sort of vehicle to the spot in any season and to explore the school if the water level os low - which means from July to November (in a normal year).
