Dave McFarnell

House: Nicholson
Year: 1957-1963

Great memories of a life of sport with very little work, but still managing to pass A levels.

Went to England in 1963 to Physical Education College in Winchester. Taught for five years in London and then decided to head for Australia. Taught in Sydney where I played professional rugby league to supplement my income. In 1974 moved to Perth, Western Australia and taught physical Education for the next 28 years at the same school.

Married a Western Australian girl, Kaye, and have no children, but both being school teachers was probably a blessing in disguise.

Retired at the end of 2001 to play more golf!!
