Celebrating 150 years- Palmer’s Island Public School

Ed, It was my pleasure to attend these celebrations on Sunday, October 2. The activities were well organised, professionally presented and engaging for all who attended. The current students were a credit to their school teachers and their families in the way they planned, created and participated in this event. The performances of the choir and the drummers were outstanding and the movie they created was both entertaining and educational. The Port of Yamba Historical Society fully supports this celebration and preservation of our local history and has contributed a paver for the commemorative path, as have many local families. We certainly recommend the book published by the school, “Palmers Island Public School 1866-2016” for its stories of school life as it has changed over the past 150 years. Congratulations to all those involved in planning and presenting this wonderful celebration for one of the oldest schools in the Clarence Valley – a job well done!
