The main entrance gates, made in the school workshops. Does anyone remember making these?
Response from Gordon Cree (Nicholson 1966-9):
One abiding memory is that I, along with Mr. Pullen, made the new gates for the School in the metal work class; I had won
the 1st prize for metal work that year 1968/69. The eyes for the Impala's heads, which were central to each gate, were
made from old ten cent pieces, the pupil being the hole in the centre - not many people would know that.... wouldn't get
away with it these days!
The jacaranda trees were spectacular in bloom around November each year. The drive is little changed, other than that the
jasmine bushes (which provided convenient cover for Crown Bird/Four Aces enthusiasts) have gone.
