Rural students who did not have a local high school were able to enrol with the Correspondence School for the first time to prepare for the Junior Certificate Examination. Twelve students enrolled in English, History, Geography, Agricultural Science and Mathematics. This was significant as students could remain in their small primary schools and complete a Junior Certificate by correspondence. At the time there were only four secondary schools in rural WA and many families could not afford a boarding school. Correspondence lessons were the only alternative.

The Correspondence School also began to accept probationary teachers and unclassified teachers who wanted to prepare for the ā€œCā€ Certificate examinations in English, History, Geography, Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry and Agricultural Science.

During this year a new event took place, a successful tour for boys (a school camp) in Perth.
