1963
Significance
This photograph is culturally significant because it is the first professionally commissioned photographs of the school during its opening day at the Shakespeare Grove, Hawthorn school site. This is significant as the school officially opened an early learning centre (kindergarten) and primary school on this day 17 February 1963 after recently closing the Drummond street, Carlton campus. This is one of the first photographs taken at Bialik College's second school site where considerable investment was made by the community to build a larger school on a new campus with modern education facilities and more classrooms for the first time at 6 Shakespeare Grove Hawthorn.
