Opening of the New Premises

The new premises which have been secured for the Cooinoo Home for Destitute Children was officially opened by Sir Fredrick Stewart on Saturday afternoon.

For nearly 14 years the committee has provided a home for destitute children in rented premises at the Corner of Emu Street and Liverpool Road, Burwood.

But recently was able to purchase and remodel a property at 31 King Street, Enfield which will provide accommodation for 25 children.  The home is free of debt, and there is plenty of playing space.

Sir Fredrick Stewart, who has been patron since its inception, after unveiling a table commemorating the opening, was shown the Sir Fredrick Stewart Cot, which the committee decided to endow instead of presenting the customary gold key.
