Hendra State High School probably was an ordinary and average school, as far as high schools go. But when I arrived there in 1970, after nine years at St. Josephs College, Gregory Terrace, an "all boys" Catholic school,  it seemed to me to have one of the things I had been missing in life.

Girls! Now there was a steep learning curve, and far more complex than anything Grade 12 could throw at me.

I was hardly there a week and Tor Fromyhr had nicknamed me "Professor." I thought it was a reference to my academic bent. (It was a Tor-ism for "smart-ass.")  In retrospect I'd have preferred that it was more a reference to the character in the Gilligan's Island TV show. With the lovely Ginger and Mary-Anne on either side of him, he still had no idea how good he had it. Yes, that sure sounded like me. Surrounded by irresistable seventeen-year old pulchritude, and sweating on Matriculating.

(Hendra State High School no longer exists. It is now "Aviation High")
