More former students arrived at the Old Birrego School today including an eighty five year old woman and her sixty four year old daughter who both went to the Old Birrego School.
One of the former students who earlier had brought over an old photo of him and his school friends, taken on the road home from school, arrived with three others who were in the photo with him. He took us to the exact place where this photo was taken – now no longer a road but a field with tall grass.
He drove his sedan into the field and told me that he remembered this road most clearly as his favorite memory of his school days when and where he walked to and from school everyday with friends, trapping rabbits, and having fun.
The road which may no longer be a road is still a road for those who remember.
