Records show that strong support was given to the club with the teachers and children benefiting by the addition of equipment (eg duplicator, first aid kit, library books) and maintenance of library books, furniture and grounds.
Fundraisers included trading tables, raffles, children's frolic, luncheons, film evenings, fashion parades, garden party.
Members took advantage of all opportunities to learn more about current educational trends, road safety, first aid, and all subjects pertaining to their children's well-being.
