Appendix Sixteen: Junction Park Staffing in the Fisher Era (1924-1940) and the Irish-McCasker Eras (1958-1973)

 

THE FISHER ERA

The Fisher era is an opportunity for a larger list of the teachers who were appointed to Junction Park State School. It cannot be a definitive study because the evidence is drawn from a patchwork of records. Nevertheless, the records provide a list which identifies more teachers than before and after this period. Some of the teachers that were at Junction Park State School at the end of the Dempsey era, but had left before the start of the Fisher Era can also be identified:

  • William Henry Morrow
  • Marjorie Bland
  • Gertrude Titmarsh
  • Edward Cameron
  • Mabel M. Cranney
  • Herbert L. Ridgway
  • Bernard J. P. Smith
  • Mabel Alice Charlton

Daniel Edwin Joyce was the Acting Head Teacher in the interim period. The following list has been composed from various sources and includes teachers at all levels including pupil teachers and relief teachers. The year columns refer to the year the said-teacher arrived at Junction Park State School, other years that documents show they were present as a staff member, and the year the said-teacher left Junction Park State School.  On 26 July 1926 Fisher drew up a staff list with the private addresses where each teacher resided.  This gives a location to 27 of 71 teachers listed here. As much possible – with the information available – the list is according to a chronological order of the period of the teacher’s time at Junction Park.

THE IRISH-MCCASTER ERAS

In the absence of staff rolls, the annual statistical returns from 1958 to 1967, and the school inspector’s reports from 1970 to 1973 create a record of staffing at Junction Park State School, separately for the ‘Main School’ and the Infants School. What is particularly good about these lists is that the class student roll numbers are matched with each teacher; hence we have a record of class sizes. From these records, the following tables have been produced. The first table lists teachers in alphabetical order of surname and identify the years they were employed at Junction Park State School. The second table shows the average class sizes by averaging the roll numbers in every entry in the annual statistical returns and school inspector’s reports. The third table matches the list of teachers with their classes or role at the school for each year.  A number of teachers on the list were held to be employed without being assigned a class or another role, and are given here the label ‘Unstated.’ It is assumed that these are teachers who are on retaining contracts without current employment or are on unpaid leave. The documents do record details of leave taken for illness and for other reasons.
