Nowhere else in the State is there anything quite like the Fairbridge Farm School
Western Mail
Charles Harper, J.W. Hackett, James Gibey, for the Western mail office, Perth, 28 September 1950, p. 18

The article was published in the 'Western Mail Countryman's Magazine' section. This article in the Western Mail is an example of the attitude to child migration after World War 2. The author of the article visited Fairbridge Farm School at Pinjarra and wrote about the children as 'the most desirable immigrants' because they were 'young enough to grow up with an Australian outlook'.
