NEWCASTLE EAST PUBLIC SCHOOL
Here is an appealing old school building on The Hill. Not just any old building. The sign states the earliest school in Australia 1816. But what is the reality? As an institution of learning the primary school had several sites until more recent times when it moved to this latest building.
The fluid and dynamic nature of 'signs.' Another sign (lower photo): Public education: Our students are Australia's future. What this really means is stop privatising education.
Why does this country copy others that way? Who wants to be like all the rest?
