On December 18th 2007, the Fairbridge Board met at the Farm School. It was also the day selected to open the replica cottage “Rosa Nobes”. John Lane is the principal benefactor in funding the construction and on that day he formally declared the building open. The Governor of Western Australia, Dr Ken Michael was guest of honour. The ceremony was attended the members of the Fairbridge Board, many people who worked on the project and many friends of Fairbridge.
