ALICE SPRINGS HIGHER PRIMARY SCHOOL ATHLETICS DAY [Newspaper Article] — Centralian Advocate — 23 August 1947

ALICE SPRINGS HIGHER PRIMARY SCHOOL ,c\. ? ATHLETICS DAY In spite of the inclement weather the Athletics Day which was held on the Anzac Hill Recreation Reserve on Thursday, August 14 was an unqualified success. This was due to many factors, but mainly to the enthusiasm of the students themselves and the generous assistance given by parents and friends, who co-ODerated so willingly. For the children the proceedings really began with an assembly in the school playground. From here the impressive march to the reserve was led by Todd House boys, who were dressed in white shorts and athletic singlets trim med with a blue sash. They were followed by the girls of the same House, who were smartly clad in blue tunics with white blouses. Stuart House came next but although their clothing was of the same pattern the colors were red. Each House was pre ceded by its House captain, who carried the House flag. The pro cession was completed by the lower school, each child of which wished he was ol...

He is just the same in appearance as his larger brother and wherever the grass is long you may find him. He has the same system of run ning through the grass and rises with the whirr, of wings. Let us tell you about the Migrator. The writer some 12 years ago, made a habit of going to Melbourne once a year for the quailing and duck shooting season. He, with friends used to go out Lake Kai-angamite way to shoot quail by day, and in the moon light to shoot ducks 'that flew off the lake and settled on the small tanks the settlers made on t\\e banks for fresh water. They would lie down without a move ment and later you could hear the flight of the ducks. Ot\c shot as they lit and another as they flew and your night's shooting might be over.. Flies were just horrible on the sheep country, and a ...
