ECP will be hosting an educator from the Presbyterian Ladies’ College of Melbourne, Australia in mid-December. She’s headed to the Walker to learn about all things art education-related for secondary students. (That’s high school, for the uninitiated.)
I’m taking a special interest because I lived in Western Australia for a couple of years while my mom was stationed at the Harold E. Holt naval communication base in the little town of Exmouth. I’ve been thinking of ways to slyly insert this bit of information into our soon-to-be-meeting. Alas, everything I think of just makes me look a little desperate. But I miss Australia sometimes!
Here’s a very typical scene of life in Exmouth – the emus wandering freely. On the military base, guards would open and close the gates to allow emus passage. They headed directly for the base commissary (grocery store) to get scraps from people.
This post at least started out ECP-related.
