Camperdown’s Alan Field, the last teacher to teach at Gnotuk Primary School, with past pupils Craig Arnold, from Brisbane, and Steve Gravett, from Camperdown, at the school reunion on Saturday. 150307LP17 Picture: LEANNE PICKETTYOUNG and old turned out to reminisce of days gone by at Gnotuk Primary School.
Former pupils and staff filled the Camperdown Guide Hall on Saturday with photos, books and memorabilia on display.
The school, just west of Camperdown, opened in 1902 and a year later reached its peak, with its intake of pupils totalling 131.
Former pupil and one of the organisers Joanne Cook said the day was a great success.
“It was great just to see people’s faces as they went through all the stuff,” she said.
“A lot of the older ones were able to reminisce.”
Mrs Cook said a time capsule from children who were at the school in the late 1970s, when she attended, had included a letter about where she lived.
The school, now demolished, overlooked Lake Gnotuk. Each year there would be school picnics and sports days with the other local schools including Bookaar, Chocolyn, Talindert and Tesbury.
