From Mr Harry Arguile’s Magazine Editorial:
The year 1956 is likely to be looked back upon as one of the most momentous in our history. It has seen the fulfilment of several of our dreams. The Memorial Swimming Bath was dedicated at a service held on 26th February, and officially opened the following day. We have had to wait a long time for this dream to come true, but all agree that the finished article has been well worth waiting for.
Another project long overdue began to take shape when on 23rd May, His Honour the Administrator, Mr. P. I. Olivier, laid the foundation stone of the new School Hostel, and by the time this reaches you that too should be well under way.
