Artist's Description

……Julie Mahony has found these ‘creations’, i.e., my slides, photos albums, paintings, etc., which were my reaction to being sent to Bourke, to do the country service which NSW public school teachers were obliged to do, as part of the bond-system which, in the 60s was the only way to become a primary school teacher, via the teachers colleges.

This may be the 20th time that I write, on the www, that I built up such a collection of photos, movies, slides, letters, (Kept the Christmas cards I was given…..) etc., that it’s such a pity not more ex-pupils get to see them.

Finding Julie and reading some up-dates re: the lives of these students, has made my day, today! :)
