Comment by Janet Jenner…..Asha Morgan Julie Jenner. In the first photo of the school, on the steps are my grandfather Jay Fischer & uncle Jim. Also down further it mentions Carl Fischer ( my great grandfather-Asha’s Great,
Great, Great grandfather) giving a speech. Also in the photo with the wild flowers, it looks like my mother Kathleen Longford on the far left.

Russell Island State School was eventually moved to its present site at the northern end of the island in 1926. In 1931 a special school boat was employed to transport children from the surrounding islands (Lamb, Macleay and Karrangarra) and convey them to the Russell Island State School.
