Historical information

Principal John Pascoe stands behind Senator John L. Carrick as he speaks at the official opening of stage 1 building of the new campus at Truganina, February 1979. Classes began in temporary classrooms a year earlier and students reflected on the hive of activity while buildings went up around them in the 1978 yearbook, Literata:

'We still had to put up with the noise of the builders finishing the building' D.W
'There was hardly anything to be taught in...I thought it was disorganised, lonely and hectic' K.H.
'I do not know how the workers completed the school in such a short time' A. DiM.

In a longer piece, past student and school captain, Fiona Kellett, wrote: 'Where once there were just paddocks, we now have a fine school, of which we are very proud. In the years to come this school will become bigger and everyone will see their dreams and hard work fulfilled'.
