Staines. STAFF : RIGHT SIDE: Miss M. McIntosh, Mr C.Hoffman, Mr W. Wilcox, Miss N. Thompson, Miss M. Melville ABSENT: Mr A. Barcan, Mr H. Gillard Photograph courtesy of Isabelle Paton FROM “NEWCASTLE MORNING HERALD” WEDNESDAY, 2ND MARCH, 1949. COLLEGE MAY BE READY MARCH 14 The Principal of Newcastle Teachers’ College (Mr G. H. Duncan) said yesterday that he hoped to be able to start classes on Monday, March 14. By then he thought painters and carpenters should have finished. Linoleum should have been laid and toilet facilities completed, he said. Mr Duncan said he also hoped by then accommodation would have been found for the homeless remainder of the 164 students so far enrolled for first-year studies. These students came from places such as Murwillumbah, Wingham, Lismore, Taree, Kempsey, Dorrigo and Ulmarra. Some had still to come. When the college opened yesterday, students spent most of the day filling in admission cards and numerous circulars and applications…such as tram and bus passes. From to-day they will attend district schools as observers till the college is ready. When classes start students will begin to study in 14 subjects incorporated in the first-year course…principles of education, educational psychology, social studies, geography, history, mathematics, music, speech, dramatic art, method of teaching English and English literature, arts and crafts, physical education and biology, plus one optional subject from the curriculum. Practice Teaching They will spend one morning a week in the demonstration school at Junction to learn practical teaching technique. Twice a year they will be sent to schools for practice teaching, where their work will be observed and supervised by members of the college staff. The schools will be in the Newcastle area, probably within seven miles of the college. To assist students with any problems arising from the course, Miss H. McIntosh and Mr J. W.. Moore have been appointed staff councillors. At their first assembly at 10.30 yesterday students were told by Mr Duncan that there was a changing concept of the teacher’s function. However important the job of teaching basic skills might be, it was now recognised that the profession of developing individual pupils was even more important. Because their building was not complete, there were certain difficulties to be overcome. It was typical of the spirit of young Australians that those difficulties would be met cheerfully.

Trying to calm my nerves before exam this morning
I browsed through this notice board in main hall of University of Technology of Sydney. It is the longest notice board I have ever seen - maybe around 10 meters in length. In addition, there is layer upon layer of papers/notices stuck on it. It has a lot of the expected - notices for looking for flatmates and accommodation. But, there is also all sorts of other more interesting stuff - adverts for selling drum sets, surf boards, inflatable mattresses and overpriced portable USBs. Invitations to strikes and protests, appeals for blood donations and information on STDs, diets and ski trips. Many notices in Chinese, Korean and Japanese. One notice for a Lebanese theater production.
An interesting view into life of Sydney students.
