I had a resources meeting for the Ballarat High School School Council this evening. I took the opportunity to take a few photos of the historic Peacock Hall Building ( named after a past student and Premier of Victoria) Below are photos of the exterior and the interior of the building. I took these before the meeting started this afternoon. My own children attended Ballarat High and received an excellent education.
Note the victorious rowing boat on the wall. Ballarat High run an excellent rowing program and have had fantastic success on the local Head of the River event against private schools with more resources and better facilities than us.
Students sit exams in the upstairs hall. The names of past students who fought in wars since the Boer War are on the honour rolls around the walls.
