74(casual) 75/76 - Yrs 3 and 6

My husband was an Air Traffic Controller. We lived at Tan Sai Gin (865?), Butterworth, and most days travelled on the school bus.

In 74 I was asked to fill casual vacancies,and subsequently was appointed full time for 75/76. My classroom was temporary - attap roof held up by large tree trunks -different and a fun place to teach. I have fond memories of being involved with the school.

On returning to Australia I returned to teaching, mainly at High School level, but have been retired now for MANY years!!!

We have visited Penang several times since, including the school reunion in '84 and the Base Squadron 50 th Anniversary in 2008.
