School playground one day, market day the next. The Junction Public School has begun a market on Saturday mornings, once a month, I believe.
The school was known as the Junction Demonstration School but was not one for political activists; the Teachers' College was once nearby.

Very interesting. Does the school make some money on this market? Where do their products come from?

Very likely the parent's group would have a market stall or sell refreshments or that sort of thing as well as charge a fee for the other stall holders to take part. So, it could be craft works or food or cafe lates or raffles or some indulgences to tempt the buyer and make money for school equipment or ubiquitous air con or computers and other really 'green' items etc to supplement the budget from the state government.
