Stories Out Of School takes you on a journey with Graham McGrath, through his own school days and primary teaching career spanning some 60 years. He tells his story in a humorous and sometimes serious way. Graham built his life around a refreshing, light hearted, open and sometimes crazy approach to mixing with people and kids that he loved to teach and tease in a fun and respectful way.
School life back in the seventies and eighties had more open boundaries than today. He always wanted his students to have fun in the classroom. It opened up opportunities sometimes for pranks and situations that may not be deemed appropriate in today’s world.
Following the success of his first book, Eh Schoolie!, this delightful read extends the journey to a final destination in a warts and all revelation of Graham’s life as a teacher.
This book is available to purchase individually, or as a package deal with our first book Eh Schoolie! or with our CD’s.
Eh Schoolie! is an honest and capturing biographical account of a young man’s early experiences with outback station living and country life in the late 1960s to the early 1970s.
Graham McGrath tells his story of how he embarked on a challenging career, teaching in one teacher rural schools at Mabel Creek Station, Butler Tanks and Muloorina Station in South Australia, at the age of 20.
This warm and frank account of those early years, detached from the comforts of suburban living he had been accustomed to, emerging from under his parent’s wings, reveals a compelling story of emotions and confrontational experiences. His journey would be a learning curve of awkward romantic moments and growing up in general.
Threaded with humour, the story unfolds and comes to life as Graham encounters and tackles head on, colourful and seasoned characters of the bush. He embraces the unexpected, both painful and rewarding, which undoubtedly was to shape his future and pathways in life.
