A Memory From One of Our First Students

Philip Schubert wrote a memory of his days as a student of Port Hedland School of the Air.

My name is Philip Schubert, and I lived at Pardoo Station from 1962 to 1966 before moving to Louisa Downs in the Kimberley in 1966. During that time, I did correspondence lessons in 1963 and 1964 and remembered the opening of the School of the Air in Port Hedland. I was in Grade 7 when it opened, and the oldest pupil.
