School bans the First fleet
10-May-2011 | News-Press Release
Nigel Morris, a former student of Gunnedah South Public School, has had a copy of Algernon Talmage's "The Founding of Australia" which he had donated on behalf of his family returned by the principal Emma Jeffery. The stated reason was that affixed to the wooden frame is a plaque inscribed with the title.
"I'm stunned. For the school to say it cannot accept my gift because it displays the name the artist attributed to his work is right out of this world".
Mr Morris says he has written to the P&C association asking the members to make representations to the school executive to overturn the ban on the First Fleet and that he also plans to appeal to his local state member of parliament.
