1981 back to school

The cover and inside cover of my school folder from FTG High. Circa Sept 1981.

  1. from a time before FB, when boredom was filled in by filling in… I may or may not reveal contents of these folders – includes an essay arguing that I did not need to do a review of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ because I had already done a review of William Burroughs Naked Lunch. Teacher’s comment on the page – ‘well written, but you did not answer the set question’. Exactly.


  2. Hi John, I enjoyed the cover and inside cover – such doodling seems to be a feature of whiling away time at school … my girlfriends and I (during our final years at Warracknabeal High) wrote short poems along the margins of our Physics texts … and geometric patterning is a wonderful way to relax … Cheers, Lee Date: Sat, 5 Jul 2014 11:40:23 +0000 To: lee_emmett@hotmail.com


    1. Lee – here I am lamenting lost art forms and there you were inventing twitter – in Warracknabeal though, so you missed the big bucks sadly.
