In 1959 during my last year at school, I would catch the rail motor from Loftus to Sutherland then I had to change trains for Miranda. I used to meet my friends on Sutherland Station and chat until our train came. I went to school in Sydney.
This would be the last day we did this as this was our last day at school after 12 years. It was a mixture of excitement and sadness. I wonder what these girls are doing now. I have not kept in contact with any of them.
Some kids were allowed to drive their parent's car to school. We thought that was cool then but now it is common.
Our last ever school parade in the quadrangle of Port Hacking High School.
We didn't have to do any lessons but we did go to our form class to present our form teacher, Mr Walshe , with a present of a briefcase. He was my best ever English teacher.
