Colonel Light Gardens Primary School was opened in 1926. It was built on the site of the Mitcham Camp, an extensive World War 1 training ground that extended through the majority of present-day Colonel Light Gardens.
In 2015 CLGPS produced a film called “Our World War 1: remembering Mitcham Camp” which commemorated WW1 and the Mitcham Camp; see the project blog which includes many resources and photographs.
