THE MORELAND STATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Coburg Leader — 15 July 1891

THE MORELAND STATE SCHOOL. The Education Department seems to have little regard for the health of the children who attend some of its schools. That at Moreland in Station Avenue is an instance in point. The locality is a very wet and muddy one during winter, and the children have frequently to wade knee deep through slush to reach the school. When they reach it their troubles are not ended, as the accommo dation is so insufficient that many of the pupils are sent over to the little church in Moreland-road, where they are forced to remain in their wet and miserable condition. This is altogether unnecessary, as there is plenty of vacant land about the school to be had at a reasonable price. It almost seems as if the Education Department was waiting until some of the children die through their neglect before they take action.

" I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and there fcre the truth I speak, impugn it whoso JULY IsTa., 1891. IT is just possible that the well meant endeavours of the Coburg council to prevent the refined cruelty of over loading horses may do'mnore harm than good, unless a wise caution is adopted. The council have evidently, two ends in view in taking up the matter. The first and most important is to restrain-or if possible suppress-the too common practice of overloadingR horses, whilst the second is in' the direction of pre venting the enormous wear and tear to which the municipal highways are sub jected by the unduly heavy loads which are placed on narrow tyred wheels. Both these objects are laudable ones, and if the action of the local council will smooth the way to their accomplishment, Coburg will earn the lasting gratitude of other municipalities as well as its own ratepayers. The man who systema tically overloads a horse is beneath contempt, a...
