This is the new church, the original burned down a few years ago.

 

Palmerston Island Yacht Club

 

 

 

 

A little more relaxed than the yacht clubs back in North America.

The Country Club

A Picture is worth a thousand words…

 

 

 

The Fire Station and Equipment Room, and yes the blue floral shirts are part of their uniforms.

 

 

 

Very Chic.

 

 

 

The school, grades one to six.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the school room for students from grade seven to twelve.  Yvonne, who is married to Tere teaches the older grades and is the principal for both school buildings.  Yvonne was showing us around the classroom and

 

 

explaining how she was able to manage

this many classes, and over in the corner the older kids were fooling around and getting louder and louder, kids never learn do they, Yvonne is very slim and speaks very quietly but when she needs to make the kids pay attention she firmly yells out oiii…and much shuffling and murmurs then all is quiet again.  This was the last part of our tour; time to watch BBQ some freshly caught Parrot fish.
