Farm for Boys
The West Australian
4 March 1947, p. 9

'Farm for Boys' is an an item from The West Australian. It tells readers about a plan to build a Farm School for boys from Sister Kate's Children's Home and seeks donations. The letter is from Ethel H. Dannatt, from the Sister Kate's Children's Home at Queen's Park. She explains one purpose of the farm: When the boys leave Sister Kate's at age 14 and then 'have two years' definite training on a farm they will be able to go into the country and earn their own living. To establish the farm was one of Sister Kate's most cherished plans for the welfare of her lads, and, for her sake we want to carry out her wish as soon as possible.' The letter says that the site chosen for the farm was located along the Canning River and came with a house that could be used by a farm manager.
