Square gets work - as a city apprentice!
Sunday Times
1 June 1952, p. 4

'Square gets work - as a city apprentice!' is an item from the Sunday Times. It is the third in a series of items about a young man who grew up at Sister Kate's Home and the Kenwick Farm school and who wanted to stay in the city in opposition to the Home's policy of returning young people to work in country areas. Public opinion and local supporters helped the young man find a job in Perth and a home in Maddington. The authorities at Sister Kate's were reported as being prepared to 'relax' their policy 'in this case' because of the strength of public opinion. The item also refers to a letter from an Adelaide schoolteacher who had taught the young man some years earlier, and who praised his intelligence.
