Yooralla – one hundred years

One hundred years ago, Evangeline Ireland (Sister Faith) found a young disabled girl left inside a chicken coop while her parents were at work. That incident led to her establishing Victoria’s first free kindergarten for disabled children: ‘Yooralla’ (an Aboriginal word meaning ‘place of love’).

I’ve got quite a bit of work from the Burwood Bulletin over the years and I think I’ve had my little ad running for about 15 years and had lots of jobs and met some lovely people. My main motivation is to give the BB some extra much needed income to help save this great newsletter/magazine. Regards, Martyn
