Wordless Wednesday - Sharing Memories - School of the Air

Recently, I was looking through some more of my father's old slides and found two photos that bring to life the story I wrote early this year, Sharing Memories - Early School Days in the Bush - School of the Air. 

The first picture is of all the children lined up in front of the school bus in their school sports uniform., just before they all climbed on the bus and headed off for the Annual School of the Air Picnic.  

The second picture is of all the parents and children socialising outside the hall at the Annual School of the Air Christmas Party.  I love all the ladies dressed up in their best with their hats.  These two events were the highlights of the year for the parents and students of School of the Air, many would travel between 200-100 kms to attend these events.
