Once Mrs. Rutter returns to the U.K., she continues to update the School on her progress. She receives many welcome letters from the Carrolup boys during 1950.
‘Every letters [sic] you write Mr White reads it out to the school children. We are very proud of you and what you are doing for us in other parts of the world.’ Parnell Dempster, 6th July 1950.
‘How we, us boys come to do such beautiful art work of scenic and bush scenes is that we spent all our previous play hours at school and weekends doing this work and three years of this took our art work up to where it is today, and I say all honours are on Mr White who gave us that opportunity to improve our work…’ Barry Loo, 20th September 1950.
‘Before Mr White came to Carrolup nobody ever heard the name of Carrolup, but now it is known all over the world. So now I am getting older I would like to take my place in this world amongst other people and be respected as a decent citizen of Australia.’ Reynold Hart, 1950.
