Text moved from article page[edit]

Being a child of parents living in Cobham Avenue, West Ryde, my first school, around 1944, was the Wallumetta school a short walk away in Wharf Road, Wallumetta, now known as Wharf Road, West Ryde. The school comprised one single classroom on a large block of land. The teacher was Miss Chappis-Welsh. The local area was then known as Wallumetta and later it became Melrose park. I think it was a Mr Levy who authored a book about the area titled "Wallumetta" and as I recall it had a white cover.
