If found this record when going through my parents' effects in January 2012. I thought others might find it interesting. I plan to scan the covers and put the images online soon. The following is the information on the front and back covers of the album.
Personal Note: I attended Knox Grammar School between 1966 and 1974 (the year of the 50th Jubilee celebration).
A Tribute to Dr. Ross McKenzie (Headmaster 1956-1969) and Mrs. McKenzie
[Recorded at the War Memorial Chapel of Knox Grammar School, Wahroonga, 27th September, 1968]
The Music of Knox Grammar School
Knox Grammar School, situated on Pacific Highway, Wahroonga, N.S.W., is part of the Presbyterian Church of Australia. It is one of the six Associated Schools of N.S.W. and was established in 1924, with an enrolment of 28 boys.
At present there are over 840 boys in the Secondary portion of the school with a further 420 in the Preparatory School.
Music within the school is extra curricular but is very actively supported by the boys at all age levels, both chorally and instrumentally.
Our choirs are coached by Miss J.E. Taylor, a member of the Preparatory School staff who, for the past decade, has given many hours of her time to this activity.
Dr. Ross McKenzie and Mrs. McKenzie (who has given generously in teaching both individual boys and groups in speech and drama) will always be associated with Knox Grammar School and in this regard the boys of the present school, under the leadership of the school captain and his officers, have commemorated this association by producing this record.
It is hoped that all who listen will derive the same pleasure as those who have taken part in its production.
