A short walk
from the Migrant Hostel was the school.
went there when we arrived in 1952. I was 4
stayed with Mum until she found work then I
went to the pre-school which was located in
I started Kindergarten in 1953. Later that
year, or the following year, my family went
to WA to stay with Muriel & Bill. Dad
thought that he might have been able to get
better work there. I went to school but the
school was much more advanced. the children
were already reading. I was asked to stand
up and read to the class. (All the kids had
a turn, desk to desk) I remember seeing that
my turn was coming soon. When I stood up I
cried - why not!!???
