I hope this picture doesn’t convey the fact that these pupils were the only ones attending the Stokes Bay School at that time (1929/30). We were dressed like Indians to enroll in the School Fair being held in the Lion’s Head Fair grounds. Some of the students I remember missing from the picture were Deloris McLay, Isobel Burley, Lottie Burley, Jane Burley and others that couldn’t make it for some reason.
