    Photos listed under “Present Times” – Photos of people at Fairbridge events have been added.

    1. The relisting of Gordon’s webpage has created a minefield regarding Copywrite. Noting that Gordon’s site ran for some six years, It has not been possible to seek out instances of where approval and or part approval was given for the use of data that is owned by Fairbridgians and others over that time. If any person wishes to have their information deleted or indeed wishes to re-affirm their permission they can do so through the President of the OFA.

    2. As advised under “our History – List of Fairbridge Kids” that list has been deleted for the same reason given above.

    1. A list of Fairbridge Kids which was compiled by Mr Derek Smith is to be found under “Our History”.
    2. A list of upcoming events for 2014/15 have been included under “OFA” (Presidents letter dated 29 January refers).

    Fairbridge Kids has been revamped by to provide access, by those who were Fairbridge children, to the work which was originally created by Mr Gordon Stuart (old Fairbridgian). It is hoped that this site can be maintained for the Old Fairbridgians community.

    This redesign is not yet completed, but it was felt (noting the age of Fairbridgians) something should be listed as soon as possible.

    While there has been communication between Lynne Alfonsi, Gordon and Derek Smith this site has been the initiative of
    Any mistakes that may have occurred to date, in the site development and inclusion of data, is regretted.

    Is there a capable person who would like to take over management of this website? It needs a good make-over using a more modern web tool than what I use currently. Please contact me You get just about all the content to present how you wish. For someone with a little time on their hands, some technical and artistic ability, and a genuine feeling for Fairbridge history, it would be a rewarding experience, as I have found so over the last 6-7 years.

    I am very pleased to advise that I have added quite a few more photos in Old Photos section, in the 1910’s and 1920’s decades. More to come – those decades plus later, and the Parties. You may also have noticed that I am making headway with standardising the photo size to fit the screen wherever possible. I’ve done this in all the Present Times photos and the earlier decades Old Photos. Now for the rest!

    Added are some new photos around the village – Clive, Shakespeare, Scratton, Cook, around the school and the new Ruby Fairbridge Centre. I was also privileged to visit the Old Farm site at South Pinjarra and have added a series of photos (Village Recent, Old Farm). Also have a look at how Darwin looks now after repairs and renovations – absolutely great and a credit to Fairbridge W.A. and all those who were involved in the work

    I’ve added a Google search button on he first page. Leave the box ticked and put in a search and it will return all pages where your search argument exists in this site. Not bad. Might be helpful?

    Most of the web page development ideas are tested out in the “mingor” site (link in Present Times) and very shortly I plan to make this website – Click on a Pic to enlarge, Click on the Pic again to reduce it again – the same as the mingor site. Works pretty well there. This means you are returned to your place on a page without having to scroll down each time to access the next pic. A lot neater too but a lot of work to enable it. I’ll get there
