AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A small rural school is earmarked for closure, something which will affect not only the students and teachers but the whole community. But the kids of Saddler Street are battlers, and they're not about to let their school be taken away from them. Part one of the story is set in 1937 and narrates the experiences of a Greek family who recently emigrated to Australia during economically difficult times. Part two is set in 1996. Sim, from a Vietnamese family, compares his own experiences to the history of his school in 1937.
