Caption reads:
Mr C. Brook, Headmaster from 1947-1956.
"the most important objectives of education must be to discipline the mind, to teach the student how to acquire knowledge, to instil in him the desire to become an even more useful member of society.
The Government of the State has provided free education to the matriculation stage, liberal grants for books, travelling allowances and in certain cases maintenance allowances.
These grants together with a large number of scholarships, have made secondary education available to all."
High Tide 1952.
Enrolment in 1951 was 780 students.
