WOW, thank you so much for your keen interest. I was lucky enough to have a career’s officer at my school, but instead of a High School, I was lucky enough to attend a ‘Technical School’. We had the basics of english, maths, science, chemistry, physics etc, or if you wanted to go a different way you could, I did woodwork, politics, economics, english, maths, biology, driving lessons, but for year 12, I knew I was going into Nursing the next year, so all I had to do was finish year 12, I didn’t have to pass, so I did English, Maths, Biology, Psychology. I was on the school council with the principal and teachers and local business owners, it was a fantastic school. We had exams at the end of years 10, 11 and 12 but we didn’t have the same pressure as the kids in the same years in the High School.
It was wonderful. I was one of the first drivers in a blue ‘Sunbird’, it had just been a brand new car, just released, and we were allowed to use one from the car yard. It was in the late ’70’s, and so much fun.
