A great photo. The boy in the front row and second from the right is my late Uncle, Spiro Agapitos Karasavas (some of the family go by the surname of Agapitos). He was born September 25 1912 so would be about 11 years old which looks about right for your estimation of 1924. In 1922/1923 they were living in Athens. Uncle Spiro died in Sydney in 1983.
can anyone tell me the age of the boys in the 1924 boys class photo. they look around eight. If this is form C can I assume that there was an A & B form which means there was a lot of boys on the Island at that time. My father would have been 8 at that time but its hard to see his face in this pic , or he may have been in another class.

As is the case in many of these school photos, the ages of the students seem to differ. In this photo, some of the younger boys appear to be as young as 7 or 8, while the older boys (to the right and at the rear) appear to be as old as 12 or 13.
I believe the reason for this is that teachers were photographed together with all the boys they taught in different classes. The same appears to be the case in the photos of the female classes currently featured in the Forum.
