Cessnock Public School Concert. [Newspaper Article] — The Cessnock Eagle and South Maitland Recorder — 29 May 1914
Cessnock Public School Concert. The Cossnock Superior Public School Concert, held jn the Cessnock Hall, on-'Monday evening, not only demonstrated the ability of the school children, and the time and patience which the staff of teachers had. dis played in the tuition of the scholars, but also the inadequate capacity of the hall. The building was crowded, and although the teachers done all they could to find seating accommo-' dation the stream of patrons was too continuous, and before the appointed time of commencement standing room was at a premium. The result of the concert, both from a stand point of merit as well as of patronage and finance, must be .gratifying in deed to the Principal (Mr. F. Neal) and the staff of teachers who worked so assidiously to prepare the scholars under their charge. The pity of it is that we have not a hall of sufficient dimensions to accommodate a large audience and thus give the perform ers a better opportunity of displaying their talents. Mr. Arthur ...
