Island Bend School photo 1954

Roald Aarset has contributed these superb photos. He writes:

"I am a 64 year old Norwegian who lived in Munyang 1952-55. My father was an engineer with the Norwegian company Ing. F. Selmer who ran the early phase of the Snowy project. I attended the primary school at Island Bend for 1½ year 1954-55 until we returned to Norway. I do not recall any names of my fellow pupils (other than two other Norwegians who attended for a short period) or the teacher (I do think there was only one or may be two teachers for the entire school).
Attached you will find a picture from what I think must have been some kind of a school sports event late 1954 or early 1955. I am the serious looking guy in the third row from the top, up left from the girl with the glasses."
