Being only young 12yrs old I was excited, we attendant schooling in Patra were we lived, me parents had a few dramas enroll ing us in school being Australians we weren’t allowed to do schooling unless me parents made as duel citizens. This sounded all good and was easy but dramas started later on in live with national service.
Schooling was great there it only consisted of 4 hours a day in the late arvo, sport was huge there also, I competed in javelin, shot put, hurdles, swimming, long pole, sprint which I was no good at at marathon running which suited me better distances over 10km up to 40km. Not like here in Australia were sport is pretty basic in Greece sport was huge to participate and compete, schooling was great also even tho it was 4 hours a day it was advanced schooling as when we returned to Australia I missed a year 7 and went to year 8 straight up. I thought wow that’s great.
To be continued.
