Mapped out in the 50s

Wally Knott has mapped out the school as he recalls it in the 50s. This is before Tamar St was cut off and the oval created and before the additional classes were added to make a U shape around the quadrangle.

If anyone else feels like putting pen to paper, or taking Wally’s map and adding on the buildings that were there in their time, please scan away and send through to
