I was enrolled at Killarney School in Killarney Avenue Mosman in 1944 and 1945. I recall that in my first year there I had to lie down and be quiet after lunch. I have few other recollections apart from the sports day on the former grass tennis court where I took part, not very successfully, in egg and spoon races and sack races.
In my second year there I was given sewing lessons which didn’t really impress me as a boy.
In those World War II days, I recall that the double decker buses were painted in olive green camouflage markings, the trams too, I suppose.
Many boys progressed from Killarney School to Mosman Prep School, in Raglan Street, as I did in 1946.
