In Saint Leonards TAS on “Educational and Occasional...” at Soldiers Memorial Hall 14 Station Road St Leonards TAS 7250:

Greg Morrison wrote to local councillor Robin McKendrick

I believe the Hall should remain as it is - a memorial to World War 1 soldiers. Should it be converted to a school this memorial will be lost for all time. The front contains names of families of long time residents who have since passed. This memorial should not be removed just because their families have long passed. Although the Hall is probably under utilised at the moment it should not be a reason to exclude those that use it now.
The grounds also include a small playground that is used by many because it is fenced off and is very safe for small children. I am sure there is a far more appropriate area to locate the school - perhaps somewhere within the area where the athletics track is situated. Parking is another problem as it is a very busy area during the start and end of school days.It is also surrounded by residential properties which I consider not appropriate for a school use.
