Celebrating Palmyra Primary School's Centenary in 2013

It’s a small world

In 3rd Standard as it was known in 1950 we had the popular  Emmy George as our teacher.

Emmy was my father’s cousin and she was the daughter  of G.C. Smith the creator of the well known monumental business in Fremntle and  now O’Connor. Later in life 11years on,  I met a trainee teacher (and  married her) who did her first “prac” with Emmy over at Bicton. It turned out  that Emmy was at teachers training college with my wife’s late mother and they  knew each other. As I said, it was a small world back then… is somewhat  different now!
