The Best School of All Book Cover

The Best School of All is a commemorative book about Neutral Bay/Cremorne Girls High School. It takes the reader on a journey since its inception in 1926, until its forced closure, amid great furore, in 1987. Much of the school’s history is told through the stories and anecdotes of staff and pupils who were at the school during its lifetime, dating back to interviews with foundation pupils who enrolled in 1926.

Some women have extraordinary stories to tell; from survival during the Depression years, a traumatic experience as a nurse in war-torn England during WWII, migrants adjusting to life in this country after fleeing from their homeland, to the resilience of farming solo in drought stricken NSW. Then there are exhilarating stories of success and recognition in the world of Literature and the Arts; heart warming accounts of women who have reached out to improve the lives of underprivileged children.

The handsome hardback publication will appeal to anyone who enjoys reading memoirs. It will be of interest to the general public because the book expands on the history, character and development of a landmark on the lower north shore.
