At the beginning of February of 1976, children were doing all they could to enjoy the last days of summer.
Like today, the month saw students across the Eastern Eyre Peninsula return to school, but there were a few more options than there are today.
There were big plans for the Wharminda Rural School, which planned to add another classroom, so one of the existing two could be used as a library.
Summer sports were still underway, with tennis and sailing in the pages of the Eyre Peninsula Tribune throughout the month.
Cleve had strong results in the Henderson Shield in both A and B Grade cricket.
The town of Lock had a busy month, with construction beginning on a community health centre and preparations underway for the Lock Races.
