First student enrolled at TSHS

The honor of being the first person recorded on the admission register for Toowoomba State High School goes to one, Walter Stark. Walter was enrolled on May 12 along with 75 other students who attended the Toowoomba High School and Technical College on its very first day of operation down on the corner of Margaret and Hume Streets. Incidentally, Walter’s son, also named Walter, became a student of our school some years later.
