Students

WE intend following Department of Education Policy and not publish photographs or full names identifying students of school age on this site without permission. Whilst we have a list of staff from 1862, and lists of students from prior to 1924 we are awaiting advice as to whether any names may be displayed on-line.

 

How many students have passed through Tomerong Public School?

IN 150 years of education one would assume many thousands, but TPS has always been a small school with numbers varying between about 18 and 160 per annum. Based on the data available (and filling in gaps with educated guesses!) the school has averaged about 54 students per annum for 150 years and this equates to 8,159 students. If we assume that 80% of students each year continued to the next year, we find that TPS has probably had about 1,686 individual students since 1862.

Using historical photographs, information from the State Archives and past Admission Registers we have compiled a list of students who attended TPS from 1903 to 1996. This list currently has 1,212 students (the list is provided below for students who attended prior to 1940). Obviously the list is incomplete. If you have an opinion, comments or questions on the posting of staff/students names that attended prior to 1997 then contact us or post on the blog available from the Links page.
