And the rest of the evening was spent dancing…

Possibly the first reference to the school…  from The West Australian – 28 July 1913

A bit difficult to read, here’s the text:

Palmyra State School.-Recently the residents of Palmyra, with the assistance of a Government subsidy, built a hall in that suburb. Amongst other things, the hall is now being used for educational purposes, a day school having been recently commenced. On Thursday evening last a public welcome was given to the newly appointed teacher. Mr. Wynne Kinnear. In spite of the in clemency of the weather the hall was nearly full. Mr. C. Stuart presided, and Mr. H. Ainsworth and Mr. 0. Richardson and others spoke words of welcome on behalf of the residents of the district. Mr. Howard Evans, the chairman of the local education board, was present, and also welcomed the new teacher. Mr. Kinnear suitably responded. Musical items were rendered, and refreshments served, after which the rest of the evening was spent in dancing.
