I wanted to edit my post and lost all the information – I am sorry for the loss – and now I have to recreate it all!
Theodor purchased this home in 1917 and lived there until 1919, the street’s name was then called Holebrook Place but today’s address is 296 Davey Street. At this time it appears that Errol was enrolled partly in Hutchins School, Sandy Bay and Battery Point Model School.
Errol at Hutchins School 1916 and 1917!
The Hutchins School was established in 1846 at Hobart in memory of The Venerable William Hutchins, first Archdeacon of Van Diemen’s Land. It has a proud history as one of Australia’s oldest private schools for boys, with alumni distinguished in all fields of endeavour – including judges, bishops, leaders of industry, military heroes, musicians, artists, sportsmen and
our Star – Errol Flynn!
Battery Point Model School …… on Albuera Street 1918 and 1919!
Actually there is some incorrect information around about this school, which is as follows:
Errol actually never went to the Battery Point Model School as the Model School was converted into the “Albuera Street State School”. Two different addresses! The Model School existed in Battery Point from August 1883 to August 1913 it outgrew itself being designed for only 450
students, yet had risen to 922 and the need for a new
school building had become obvious, which became the Albuera Street State School and in which Errol was enrolled in February 1918 and stayed to 1919.
Many authors claim that Errol was expelled from all schools, I think this is not an accurate statement. In defense of Errol I would say his parents moved very frequently and with it changed Errol’s schools maybe too.
