What do you suppose goes on in the Gum Nut classroom? Shall I take a guess at the meaning of Acacia, Banksia, Casuarina and Dryandra...constellations? shampoos?. So long as one puts the word gum at the end of a phrase in Australia it seems to instantly ooze authenticity. Can I go to a restaurant and order cherry gum pie and will I be asked to pay with penny gums?
These are the big questions as I head to my new school. Please be patient with me Canberra.
