Back to School

Does it occur to you that all the characters on our bank notes went back to school now and then: Henry Parkes, and his 17 children; Mary Reibey, before she ran away from home; Mary Gilmore as a student and then as a teacher; John Monash to a little school in NSW and a big private school in Melbourne, Edith Cowan in an aunt's school after dad had gone to Melbourne to win the Melbourne Cup, and so on. Are you in class with a future famous person?
