> The grass around the school (later house) has been kept mown since the

> and there followed a decade or so during which the building was not
> regularly occupied, the local community kept the area mowed, as they were
> loathe to risk losing their former school (and meeting, dance and church
> hall) to bushfires. Apart from the pony paddock, the area has never been
> used for grazing to my knowledge and is not fenced. Photographs dated
> 1905, 1930 and 1949 show the grass round the school to be short.
