UPPER BROOKFIELD SCHOOL CENTENARY. 1916–2016
Upper Brookfield School celebrated their centenary on Saturday 30 July this year, with a well-attended event at the school.
The Brookfield Historical Society sent personal invitations to former pupils over 80 years of age, resulting in 20 acceptances. A special welcome was given to Edith Smith (1931-1938), Ted Carlow (1931-1938) and Fred Weiss (1931-1939), all of whom are over 90 and still live close by.
The Society contributed a substantial donation towards the printing of an 84-page booklet about the school. We also displayed, in folders, all the school photos we could find. Naming of students in pre-1974 photos is ongoing. Still missing are photos for 1941-1946, 1948, 1955-1960,1965.
KENMORE WAR MEMORIAL
The Moggill Shire Soldiers’ Memorial was erected at Kenmore in 1920, and lists sixty-seven men from the district who served overseas in the First World War, as well as a further twelve who had fought in the 1899 to1902 Boer War in South Africa.
Kenmore and District Historical Society and Brookfield Historical Society mounted a display about the Memorial in the Kenmore Library in 2015.
