100 Years Old

Black Forest Primary School Centenary

When the School began in February 1919 we were told that Black Forest was so heavily treed that you could not see the sky! It was a great pleasure to attend and start the tree replanting with students in period costume! In the Mayor's report at the moment you can not put in any photos of yourself, nor have any ideas, opinions or express concerns. In March, Council are reviewing our meeting procedures. I hope Council will encourage and allow their constituents to know  their opinions and concerns and can represent you formally in writing. It will be interesting to see how this works out. I wore the Mayoral chains which were originally in use 125 years ago. 

The First photo shows the tree planted and a picture for Mum, the second the student leaders helping!
