1912

Full Moon & Church Services




Around the time of the full moon, church services in the country were scheduled for 11.00pm, the bright light helpful for those on farms attending by horse or gig.

The Catholic church would have scheduled services at similar times.





ONE-TEACHER RURAL SCHOOL




We have seen the passing of the little One-Teacher Rural Schools, with sadness and nostalgia; and we can be sure that we will not see them again; so we salute them for their wonderful contribution to the Education of our children.

The dedicated hard-working teachers in these little schools, provided top-class education under great difficulties, with remoteness being a major problem and transport and accommodation being also of concern.
