Come to the Fair: Lock 6 School, 1929

On September 6, 1929 1100 children from many regional schools converged in Renmark for River Region Education Week. Each school was allocated colours and Lock 6 children looked resplendent in their pink and silver grey as they participated in a day of sporting activity followed by an evening concert. Some of the scholars who acquitted themselves very well from Lock 6 included Gladys Fitzpatrick, Dorothy McKinnon, Stan Underwood, Gwen Westley and Roy McCully,
At the Renmark area concert that evening the children of the Lock Six School sang ‘Come to the Fair’ which was reportedly the most outstanding item of the evening with their preparation noted as exemplary. They received vigorous applause and shouts of “encore, encore!” filled the hall.

This is the marvellous song they sang, rendered here by the The National Children’s Choir Ireland in a 2003 Concert.
