Description
Watercolour of Harkaway State School. Signed and dated by the artist, S. Marshall 1978.

A label affixed to the reverse states the following:

"Previous to the 1872 Education Act for free secular and compulsory education, the education of the Harkaway children was carried out privately. Eleanor Scholtz supplied her own and some of the neighbours children with the rudiments of Arithmetic, English and German, but something more of a permanent educational establishment was required, so Otto Herbner conducted a school near the Cemetery for a weekly fee.

Weise and Meyer later built a substantial weatherboard building which served as School, Lutheran Church and Sunday School by the cemetery, and the school was taken over by Jacob Hessell. Later Hessell conducted a boarding school at Ratharnay (WIckham).

State School No. 1697, constructed of locally hand made bricks, was opened in 1880, Mr Noble being the first Head Teacher and Mrs Nichol was for many years the sewing mistress. It was for some time conducted as a half time school, Gembrook being the other school to which Mr Noble rode through the bush on horse back. Mr Noble was followed by Mr Cook, then Mr Warby and a succession of teachers during the intervening years to the present day.

The State School is in an excellent high position ideally situated on a Watershed. The School grounds were purchased from the late, Mr James Gardiner, a well-known family, who resided in Berwick."

Why do we need International Workers' Day? International Workers' Day is a celebration of working people and a day when people campaign for decent work and fair pay. Thanks to action taken by workers over many years, millions of people have won fundamental rights and protections. Minimum wages have been established, there are limits on working hours, and people have the right to paid holidays and sick pay. However, in recent years, working conditions in many situations have got worse. Since the global financial crisis of 2008, part-time, short-term and badly paid work has become more common, and state pensions are at risk. We have also seen the rise of the 'gig economy', where companies hire workers casually for one short job at a time. These workers don't have the usual rights to paid holidays, the minimum wage or redundancy pay. Solidarity with other workers is as important as ever. The history of International Workers' Day In May 1886, 400,000 workers in many parts of the USA went on strike, demanding an eight-hour working day. The strike started peacefully, but on the third day of protests in Chicago there was some violence. The police shot at unarmed workers, killing several of them. The next day there were more protests and someone threw a bomb. Seven police officers and four workers were killed by the bomb or police shooting just after the bomb. The person who threw the bomb was never identified, but eight workers were arrested. Seven of them were sentenced to death, and one of them was sent to prison for 15 years. This event, known as The Haymarket Affair, was very important in bringing working people together in the USA. Many people didn't believe the men were guilty, and the trial was criticised for being unfair. The Haymarket Affair became an international symbol of the struggle for workers' rights, and May 1 was chosen to be International Workers' Day. On this day, socialist parties and trade unions called for workers to demonstrate for the eight-hour day and in favour of peaceful protest. The eight-hour working day became law for public workers in 1892 in the USA. Since then, workers' movements all over the world have continued to fight for and win this right. How is Workers' Day celebrated now? Celebrations and protests take place in different ways in different countries around the world. May 1 is a public holiday in countries such as South Africa, Tunisia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and China. In many countries, including France, Greece, Japan, Pakistan, the United Kingdom and the United States, there are demonstrations on International Workers' Day. Workers' Day is a day for working people to have a rest from their usual labour. It is an opportunity to campaign for workers' rights, show solidarity with other working people and to celebrate the achievements of workers all over the world. see also: https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watch-stream-jurassic-world-4k-hd-movie/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watchnow-jurassic-world-streaming4k-streamhd/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/stream-jurassic-world-dominion4k-hd-movie/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watch-stream-jurassic-world-dominion-nowfree/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watch-4k-jurassic-world-dominion-stream/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watch-jurassic-world-dominion-movies-full-streaming/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/hdwatch-jurassic-world-dominion-full/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watch-1080p-jurassic-world-dominion-hd/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watch-top-gun-maverick-hd-freee/profile https://www.raceofchampions.com/profile/watch-doctor-strange-in-the-multiverse-of-madness-hd/profile
