The plaque commemorates the centenary of the building of the Church of the Nativity which was opened as a Mission School  in 1886. 

The opening of the new School-church at the Finniss, Queen's Own Town, took place on Monday last, when the Lord Bishop of the Diocese, Dr. Kennion, attended and performed the service of opening and licensing in the presence of a large attendance. The new building is a very substantial one, lofty and roomy.
