While here they are houseguests of Mr. and Mrs. Gerrit Reinders. I've .been her over six weeks now and so many things have happened I can't mention them all. I'll g' ve a skeleton account, I flew Into Sydney on Aug. 13 and spent the next week In orientation sessions there. This consisted of speakers from different aspects of education-organization, policies, curriculum, staffing, etc. We also visited a high school In one of the suburbs. A "representative school," naturally, turned out to be In an upper-middle class area. The school overlooked one of the beaches, etc. But It was Interesting. I found the sessions Informative. There were approximately 50 of us that week- most from the states, but a few from Canada and England. In a recent newspaper article I read that approximately 330 teachers have arrived from these countries of the 1000 that have been signed up. The week I came in seemed to begin the rush of arrivals. During the week we were informed of our school assignments. When we accepted the contract, we have agreed to teach anywhere in the state of New South Wales. The majority were assigned in and around Sydney Itself. I was assigned to Llthgow-a coal- mining town in the Blue Mountains about 95 miles west of Sydney. One of the girls I met that week, Stephanie Rosenthal from Oregon, was assigned to a town near he re- Orange-Would have been a coincidence had I gone there! People kept telling me how cold it is in Lithgow. It gets down to freezing during the winter and snows once or twice a year! So I tho't it wouldn't be any problem at all, but there is no central heating here! Which means it's as cold inside as it is out! But my flat has a coal fireplace which keeps me warm enough. Caught a terrific cold my first week here though! But spring is coming and the weather is much better. Some of the major social differences here are obvious at first and have become normal with time. Many things are segreated by sex. In the classroom the fellas sit on one side and girls on the other. The pubs have special ladies lounges where men aren't . ..allowed in some bars at all. (Don't know if you want to use that!) Aussies drive on the left side of the road yet yield to the right. It's taken awhile to feel comfortable driving! The roads are mostly bad! have 2 or 3 main roads to sydney-and these «e no better than black tops or the road from Games to Le Mars- most of the curves aren't banked correctly, etc. In Lithgow, few private homes have telephones, it's hard to get used to walking to someone's house to see if they want to do something, or just to ask a question or talk. I haven't touched on the educational system, even physical education is different here. If you'd like more let me know. Include a hello to the good people of O.C. Thanks for your Interest. ' Willa D.
