Undurba State Primary School
2018 should see a wonderful project occurring here. In 2015 the then RAAF Association Pine Rivers Branch were asked if they would be involved in erecting a Memorial at Undurba State Primary School. Our branch members have acknowledged their support intending to erect a propeller as part of the School Memorial.
The last we heard of the prop, one from those famous DC3’s no less, was that it was in Newcastle ready for shipment.
Now amalgamated with the RAAFA Sandgate Branch and titled ‘RAAFA Pine Rivers and Sandgate Branch’ we have given up hope on receiving the propeller the Branch met with the school on 23rd February 2018 to re-think the Memorial. The items discussed were adding a RAAFA Plaque firstly and then install the propeller on a mast later on when we obtain a suitable one. All discussions will go to the School Committee for their decision.
Proposed inter Branch/School events were discussed where there could be two events per year. a main event would coincide with Remembrance Day in November and amid-year event to coincide with the arrival of the International Air Cadet Exchange Association visit us in July each year. A selected winner or small group would have the opportunity to meet and talk with these cadets and perhaps get their views on their outlook of the world as it is. Watch this space!
