(1979) WISALTS School. The Pingelly-Brookton Leader, 22 August 1979. [Publication] [Special Collections]


The fourth WISALTS school held at Brookton from 13 to 17 August was a resounding success with thanks to the various members of the Brookton district for their help and co-operation. Bert Mattingly, Des Pike, Tim Ridgeway, Ross McGrath, Ken Hall, Tom and Jack Yeo, Fred Whittington, Ken Gartrell, Bernie Edwards, Neville Wilkinson, Colin Bowron, Wally Richards, Tom Mills and David Turner willingly gave permission for the 35 members of the school to use their properties for field surveys, assessments and instruction. Members came from as far north as Carnamah, as far south as Esperance and east from Merredin, all going back to their respective properties armed with broader knowledge and the skills and confidence to tackle the salinity problems on each individual home front.
