A Winter Formal


One of our wonderful volunteers discovered these beautiful portraits taken of Medina Junior High School students (now Gilmore College) at a winter dance, dated June 1959.

The photos were part of the Principal’s School Journal and Daily Diary for that year.   These school diaries contained Superintendent’s reviews and notes for improvement, Head Teacher’s suggestion book as well as notes of school attendance, tests and examinations, excursions, expenses and changes to the school curriculum, so they are a wonderful resource for comparing school life then and now.

If you recognise these couples and can help the Library put some faces to names, please contact the Local History Librarian 9236 4300 or email: voicesofkwinana@kwinana.wa.gov.au
