75th anniversary, 1927
Engineering students' working bee, August 1927
The Engineering students obtained two days' leave from lectures to form a working bee to clean up their buildings and surroundings at the University to assist the University's 75th anniversary appeal.
They worked a labourers shovelling dirt into carts, diggings, sweeping or carting away weeds in the grounds. One section levelled earth and another clipped ivy on the walls - all to the accompaniment of encouraging remarks from the less energetic students.
