History/Origin Named in commemoration of Lillian May (Nanna May) Wenborn (1922?1995) who was born in England and married George Wenborn in Zimbabwe in 1948. As her children grew up and moved away from home, Lillian took in and cared for other children.

Lillian and George came to Darwin in 1977 to be closer to her family where with spare time she approached the local school and so began the ?Nanna Program? whereby grandmas would come to school to help children with their reading. Lillian continued with the program until ill health forced her to stop.
