I was so in my element, teaching at Mascot Public School, 1969-1972. I was doing the Art Teachers Conversion Course, run by the Department of Education, at Old Sydney Tech but was so much enjoying the soccer, the art, the dancing, the music, etc., (at primary level) and failing painting, in the course, (Fortunately people now find that strange.) I opted for seeking promotion and was successful.
Thus I ended up at my second-most favourite school, Busby West.
There were some awkward moments there and colleagues weren’t always that keen on me carrying my camera to every event….but….to only a slightly lesser extent, here too lots of fun was to be had, coaching some very strong soccer teams and, again, here too, some fun with dancing and the annual Open Day performances.
