Special school fete at Tallygaroopna

November 17, 2016

Tallygaroopna Primary School students dressed in period costume to help celebrate 125 years of their school's history.

History remembered: Evan Lloyd walks Tallygaroopna students across the farm to the cemetery on the property.

Tallygaroopna Primary School will celebrate 125 years of education in the town with a special old-style school fete on Sunday.

The fete starts at 11am and the school community is welcoming past students and families or anyone from the community to join in the fun.

A historical display, a high tea, sausage sizzle, market stalls, old-style games and a period costume competition are some of the activities planned.

Students learned about some of the town’s earlier history on a school excursion to a nearby Tallygaroopna house now known as Fairley Downs, earlier this month.
