Happy Hour no°297 – Tues 13th Oct 2015 – Kath, an Australian in France

Kath is an old friend of mine, from the first year of high school in Australia in fact. Despite our very different upbringings (her religious, mine not), busy family lives and a 17,000 km distance, we have against some odds, remained friends. When I heard she was coming to France for an education conference in Toulouse and would be spending a couple of nights in Paris, of course I had to ask if she would agree to being my Happy Hour guest – a challenge she accepted readily (despite jetlag!)

Not only did I quiz her about the subject of her presentation, we spoke about her teaching challenges back home, the fact that she’s helping her Dutch father write his memoirs about his early years spent in Indonesia, and what debate topics are getting Australians revved up about at the moment.
