I have spent some time trying to remember the names and faces of students in my years at Palmyra Primary. I’m not doing too well however as I have only got to 25 full names and 2 first names. From memory there were about 53 students in my year. I started in 1945 and share fond memories of Mrs Lothian and also, the love of my life at the time, Ruth Jackson. Ruth had a beautiful singing voice and I caught up with her a few years after leaving Paly when she was singing on stage in the Perth Town Hall.
I am attaching a couple of photos that may bring back some memories to a few. Above is when we were planting a tree for Arbor Day, the first Friday in June 1948. From the right are Ross Purser, Evan Hinckley and myself holding the spade. I can’t clearly recall the other two chaps although the second from the left could be Teddy Watson.
