Rose Park Primary School alumni - Windback Wednesday
Rose Park Primary School alumni – what memories do you have of school?
Rose Park Primary opened on Monday 30 January 1893, with 250 students enrolled and space for 600. The School was built due to overcrowding at Norwood. The original building comprised seven classrooms.
The first head teacher, Carl August Wittber, was known for being musical and would visit classrooms to play ‘jolly tunes’ on the violin as a diversion for tired pupils.
