Graham has been a primary school teacher for more than 40 years, working in schools in country South Australia. He was well known by his students and is remembered fondly as a music teacher. He retired in 2014.
We raised our two children at Arno Bay on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia where we lived for 21 years. During that time Graham taught at Cleve Area School. Jo is a retired Regional Newspaper Manager and Regional Television Office Manager.
In 2015, Graham wrote and published a biography, ‘Eh Schoolie’ about his life experiences as a young teacher, teaching in rural schools in the bush and outback. This book is in its second print. After the success of this book, he was encouraged to write a second book, ‘Stories Out Of School’ about his years as a teacher in the classroom.
