Storytelling, music and silent movies: The Old Laverton School is 125.

Jackie Kerin (that'd be me) will be among guests at an open day for the old Laverton School in Altona Meadows. I'll be there with my friend and colleague, Alan Davies. Alan is the director of the Newport Community Choir and will lead us in a few rounds of song.

The Old Laverton School is one of Melbourne’s last remaining single-room schools, the 125-year-old building at 53 Kiora Street operated as a school until 1951.
It is now a community and arts centre but will be opened to the public during the National Trust Heritage Festival.
Visitors will be treated to storytelling, music and silent movies from the 1920s and ’30s, with scones served just like they were for the school’s war fund-raising efforts. The school will be open on Saturday 3 May from 1pm.
