1950–1959



Even though the school was overcrowded with inadequate facilities and staff shortages, students of the 1950s participated in professional and academic programs and a wide range of sports. Annual visits to and by Warrigal HS were a highlight. Boys and girls were kept separate at assemblies, in the school yard and in some classes. Dedicated and highly qualified teachers had a positive influence, despite having 40 pupils in each class in Years I to IV.
