Podcast History of Carrum

Hi folks, we need your help. In Term 3, the Grade 5/6 students at Carrum Primary School are researching the history of Carrum. As part of their work they will be producing a series of podcasts capturing stories and events that take listeners on a journey meandering through Carrum’s recent history, uncovering previously unheard stories, histories and personalities.

We would love to hear your story!!

We are seeking involvement from locals who can give listeners an insight into what it was like at Carrum Primary School in the past, the time before Patterson Lakes was built, the early years of our great local clubs – Football, Cricket, SLSC, Bowling, Sailing, etc., stories about our unique Carrum Cowboys. We are after any story about Carrum’s history, tall tales and true.

If you would like to be involved with this project, please contact Marcus Mulcahy at mmulcahy@carrumps.vic.edu.au or call the Carrum PS Office on 97721117. Thank you for your support!! (The photo features some Carrum Cowboys)
