Pioneer teachers of the Kelly Country : Head Teachers and their Schools in North-East Victoria during the 1870s and 1880s by L. J Pryor( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The schools of North-East Victoria in the 1870s and 80s were often primitive structures with bark slab walls and shingle or tin roofs. They proved to be freezers in winter and furnaces in summer. During the International Exhibition in Melbourne in 1880 the Australian Sketcher reported on a displayed portable school: "The room, 30 by 18 feet ... designed to accommodate 50 to 60 pupils, was fully equpped with a gallery, a table, desks, forms, easels, blackboad and reading tablets." Rarely however, was such a fully-equiped 'modern' building set up in the back-blocks of the Kelly Country, and if it were the white ants promptly moved in ... One of the Kelly Country teachers, Thomas Curnow, was the hero of the siege at Glenrowan when the Kelly gang arrived on Saturday 26 June 1880. Kelly had pulled up some of the railway line on the northern side of town. Curnow was able to wave down the police train and avert a catastrophe, receiving a reward £1000 for his efforts. Another teacher, James Wallace, the head of Hurdle Creek, was accused of playing a dangerous double game of being a police informer and a Kelly sympathiser. He was officially suspended form the Department on 20 October 18811." --Back cover
