Cairns City Library Literary Trail U
Mark Hayes

Author: Milton Undy

Mark Hayes described his Undy piece: I wanted to symbolize the now demolished Cairns Central School through the mango trees which still remain. These trees of knowledge carry the rich cultural history of the school children who studied there over 100 years, from 1887-1987. Symbolically, the background of hills and beyond that, the vast sea and soaring clouds, represent the new horizons of the hopes and dreams of the students.
