there was one more page i wanted to include in the recently published book of student work
for some reason i had filed it as 'z.doc', i suppose because i intended it to be the last page
it got lost in the electronic filing system.
but as they say in the old country
"wer suchet, der findet"
and today i found the page so here is the text it would have contained.
I have on many occasions also been a student and would like to acknowledge and thank those who taught me. I wish I could remember all of your names but alas, age hath wearied and the years condemned...and some of the detail has become fuzzy with time.
But here’s a spirited attempt to list at least some of you :
Mrs Pownall [Nature Studies, Shelford CEGGS, Melbourne]
Mrs Williams [English and History, PLC, Melbourne]
Michael Peake [Art, Heathfield High School]
Nalda Searles [string theory]
Karen Diadick Casselman [lichenologist and dyer]
Dorothy Caldwell [textiles]
Christopher Orchard [storyteller and magician of charcoal]
Helen Carnac [enamellist]
Robin Best [ceramicist]
Julian Roberts [fashion]
Roz Hawker (metal magic)
Velma Bolyard (shifu)
Sandra Brownlee (notebooks that beg to be held)
John Kelley (my sax teacher)
Naomi Shihab Nye [poet]
John Schenk [Architect]
David Thomson [nurseryman]
Karoly Szabo [nurseryman]
Bob Blows [nurseryman]
Tex [whose “real” name is lost but who was a stylish and erudite Professor in the Architecture Department at the University of Adelaide in the 70s]
Victor MacFarlane [Professor of Anatomy, University of Adelaide]
Brian Grigg [human encyclopaedia of sheep]
Arthur Phillips [watercolourist]
