leave a comment »

The Yelarbon community are in the planning stages for their 100th year anniversary of the opening of the school.  It was opened on 16 July 1912 with a  celebration in early September 2012 planned.  I will be attending a meeting  tomorrow (Monday) at 3p.m in Yelarbon to hear how’s it is all going.   Likewise the Texas School celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2012 having been opened on 6 June 1887.  Attached is a photograph from a  billy goat race at the Texas State School in 1908.   I remember the 125th anniversary of the Goondiwindi State School in 1989 and they are huge community celebrations.
