It is a glorious Autumn day here at school today. The children have been laughing to the sounds of the crunch and crackle of fallen leaves as they run through them, kicking them up in the air.
It is a delight to watch. The backdrop red classroom is of one of our historic open-air rooms.
Ray Blank was the headmaster of Fendalton School from 1922 until 1949. He was instrumental is opening up classrooms which featured much larger windows for more light and ventilation. The French doors open to the playground. This was to help combat influenza last century. It is wonderful that it survived the earthquakes and still stands proudly in our school grounds.Share
