More high school memories
During the 1960s the school had a large number of students from the Hydro towns of Tarraleah, Wayatinah and Strathgordon who boarded at the Carinya Hostel and amongst this class picture are some of those students. They would travel to New Norfolk on a Sunday evening and return on Friday to their homes in the highlands. Many of those students would leave the school when the Hydro scheme their parents were working on had been completed. Many were from eastern European backgrounds and some may have travelled back to their homelands.
Steve Balmforth who was a member of this class is trying to locate as many of his classmates as possible, mainly from an personal interest point of view and to see just what the class members have been up to in their lives. He would like to briefly document as much information as possible on the class members to include in his recording of his time growing up in the Derwent Valley.
If anyone has any information on any of those in the photograph, including their contact details, Steve would be most appreciative of any information. He can be contacted on email or via post at 101 Field St, Clifton Hill, VIC 3068.
