    The Daily Mail featured pictures from the Lost Collective Macquarie Boys Technology High Gallery. Read more about how this came to be here.

    This school is so far beyond saving. There were a number of people calling for the school to be restored when this gallery went live.

    I think the photos probably speak for themselves in the sense that the school is just too far gone to be reused and it would seem the land could be better used for other purposes.

    In 2016, the school hall suffered an arson attack and was completely destroyed.

    I can't help but wonder why public land, such as Macquarie Boys Technology High that is going to waste goes through such extensive periods of total inaction, allowing the buildings to fall into a state of disrepair.

    It's a different story for heritage listed or historically significant buildings, but Macquarie Boys Technology High is neither.

    I wouldn't be too surprised if the state of the school descends even further over the course of another decade.

    There was quite a large number of former students who saw the original collection of pictures when they were published to the Lost Collective Facebook page.

    Can you imagine seeing the school where you spent the majority of your childhood in a state like this?

    Lost Collective - Feature in Daily Mail

    Photographs of an abandoned, derelict school have emerged after a photographer ventured into the neglected property to document it's decline.

    The Macquarie Boys High School in Sydney's west was closed in 2009, a result of falling enrolments and after accusations, the Department of Education had let it 'bleed to death'.

    But the amount of damage done to the school in the past seven years makes it seem as if the property has been unused for much longer.
