  1. Gladstone was my Primary School and I returned there as a student teacher and then for my PA year in 1962 with a class of 25 children. It was a coveted position. I was invited back the next year to take the deputy Principal’s class, the Headmaster was on leave or a course for 2 terms but I never managed to get another appointment before marriage and a family. I read and viewed the video on this site and was amazed at all the exciting concepts and the wonderful facilities. It was unrecognisable but I still felt nostalgic remembering the happy times both as a student and a teacher. A long time ago!
