Maitland Grossmann’s 130th anniversary

From the Maitland Mercury report:
The school hall is prepared and ready for Maitland Grossmann High School’s 130th anniversary. 
Earlier this year the school tracked down its oldest living former student, 107-year-old Edith McDonald, following a search in the Mercury. 
Mrs McDonald, who lives in Moree, attended the school in the early 1920s when it was Maitland Girls High School.
Established in 1884, the girls school was amalgamated with Maitland Boys High School more than 100 years later, in 1987.
