About

The Ian Bayliff Fairbridge Farm School Molong Papers website is an ongoing web project by Ian ‘Smiley’ Bayliff in an effort to bring together a wide range of materials relating to the Fairbridge Farm School scheme, and to make this information available to all.

The bulk of the papers focus on The Fairbridge Farm School at Molong, NSW, where Smiley himself attended, with more content being added as he continues with his research and receives valuable contributions from former children of the Fairbridge Farm School scheme and members of the public.
