School To Benefit

Session Relinquished


Welcome Home

Ted Noffs Here


The Central School is to benefit by $2250. The money, presented to the School Committee by the Centenary Jubilee Committee, is mainly comprised of donations made by ex-pupils during the recent celebrations. It is recommended that the money be used towards a swimming pool for the new school. Jubilee committee chairman Murray Upton writes out the cheque to hand over to School committee chairman Brian Bull.
