My first experience, of school, in Australia, was in Scheyville Migrant Camp, 1956. About 6 of us, in this 6th class, were from the Netherlands, almost all the rest of the class was from Malta.

I was only there a number of weeks, with my mother, before joining my father, in Villawood Hostel.
I hope to see more Dutch-born ex-residents, in May!

I was there in 2005. A very pleasant day!

Celebrating and gathering of the diverse groups associated with the historic site named ‘Scheyville’ in 1911.

During its one hundred-year history, the site has hosted a range of uses – the most important occurring during socially, culturally and politically significant phases of Australian history.

To mark the centenary, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NWPS) will host a celebration open to all the diverse groups associated with Scheyville. There will be an exhibition of photographs, documents and recorded histories of the site.

There will be an opportunity for oral histories to be recorded for those who are interested in participating.
