Eric John Wainwright
Memories of school:
Not much after more than 40 years!
Very happy overall, with a lot of sport of all kinds.
White-washing the roadside stones when on detentiion under the watchful eye once of Mr Fletcher the headmaster.
Running up the stairs of the science block as a test on work output!
Cycling into town on a Sunday.
Since leaving School:
Went to UK in 1964 (via South Africa where I caught malaria!) and on to university.
Then worked for 3 years at University of Surrey in Guildford, but couldn't stand another English winter and went out
to Perth in Western Australia in 1972.
Since then have worked for various universities and the federal government in Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra, Cairns, and
finally in Townsville where I've just retired after 7 years as Pro-Vice-Chancellor at James Cook University.
With my wife, Dagmar, I expect to be travelling for a while. My 2 daughters Sally and Julie (and my first wife Helen,
nee Shaw, ex-KHS for girls 1963) are all in Australia.
