Yallourn Primary School YPS First No 4 Hillside - 1922

On 12 February 1922 the Yallourn State School No 4085 was opened with 13 pupils. The first school building was a weatherboard cottage at No 4 Hillside. By 1923, enrolment had reached 139 pupils; they came from the Camps and outlying areas, so a move to new and bigger buildings in Outlook Road was needed. This would become the Secondary School when a new Primary school was opened in 1932, on the corner of Fairfield Avenue and Banksia Crescent.

1923 Yallourn State School YPS - CAN ANYONE PUT ANY NAMES TO THIS PHOTO?

Letter received with photo 2016:
Dear Julie. I am a librarian at Newman College, Parkville and we came across the attached photo in our archives. I wondered whether you may be able to help with identifying some of the children.
(The fact that is was found in our College archives suggests that one of the students may have attended Newman
College later on.)
Kind regards, Rhonda
Librarian - University of Melbourne

There may have been others but I do know that Annaliese Kohler attended Newman in 1937 or 1938...RS
