Photographer Peter Peryer is posting at the moment about the influence that the School Journal publications exerted on him as a child, and matching up some of his work with E. Mervyn Taylor's woodcuts, which appeared regularly in the Journal.

My main memory of the School Journal is the cringing embarrassment of having to perform the plays during assembly.
There will be general opportunities for reminiscing about the Journal next year; it's the publication's centenary, and Greg O'Brien and Jenny Bornholdt will be organising an exhibition to mark this at the National Library Gallery, Wellington.
