The plaques were erected as a project to commemorate the nation`s bicentenary in 1988. The plaques give a timeline of the history of the Wolseley School at the site.  

The Bicentenary marked the 200th anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet in Sydney in 1788. Captain Arthur Phillip (1738–1814), commander of the First Fleet, established the foundations of a British colony at Sydney Cove on the 26 January 1788.
