    Neil, I quote:

    “The present school was officially opened by the Honorable DH Drummond, Minister for Education, on June 9, 1928 on land formally known as ‘Billy Goats Swamps’ but renamed ‘Moore Park’.”

    Since this Drummond is my grandfather and consequently the one I write about, I have been trying to find a photo on line to create a link. So far, no luck.

    I will take a pic of the plaque if that helps. Also, contact the school, arrange a visit and go to their archives. There is bound to be a picture, as well as records of the event.
