Artist's Description

There was a “Back to Mascot” day, at Mascot Public School.
A great opportunity to have a look around the school where, between January 1969 and December 1972, I spent so much energy and had such a good time!
The “Back to Mascot” day was celebrating the opening of the new assembly hall but much of the rest of the building and surrounds were still as I left, to be transferred to Busby West Public School, to take up my then first promotions position, as what was then called Deputy Master.

At Mascot School I coached the three soccer teams; ran the school dances; had the pupils’ art displayed in Hyde Park, during the Warratah Festivals; ‘produced’ “Alice In Wonderland” (my version); while undertaking the Art-Teachers Conversion course, four nights a week and four weeks, during the holidays and needing to usually work on the art assignments in my “spare time”, as well as going for that first promotion.
.
It was my fifth year into teaching, after Riverstone P.S., Maude-via-Hay and Bourke Intermediate High School.
.
On the weekends, I entered the Mascot School soccer teams into the Protestant Churches Competition and also found time to do quite a bit of filming using the then popular super-8 mm film, which you could"stripe" (add sound tape).
.
It would have been good to catch up with some colleagues and pupils from those years.
Hopefully, one day there’ll be another “Back to Mascot” day.
.
An interesting day!!
