Enuring Stuggle: St Mary's Tardun Farm School

David Plowman

2003

Between 2002 and 2009, Professor David Plowman was Chair of the Child Migrants of Malta (C-MOM) organisation which raised awareness of this demographic and was involved in successfully lobbying for memorials in Malta and Fremantle, Western Australia. In 2003, he published a history of the Tardun Farm School, an agricultural school run by the Christian Brothers from 1928. The school took in child migrants from Britian and Malta as well as boys who were wards of the Western Australian state. David Plowman's history includes discussion of child migrants at the school as well as the Christian Brothers' attitude to education.
