following are a few funny memories and notes that have been
taken from the End of an Era magazine published in 1994.
If you have any short stories or memories of St Pauls you wish
to share please
year 10 camp at Santa Monica in 1982, a student began his
descent on the flying fox only to pass unscathed between a
moving school coaster and its trailer load of canoes!
Marge Odgers who left St Paul's during 1986 taught for over
the span of a quarter of a century! I do believe there
may be some current Damascus staff from St Paul's who have
also reached this milestone.
Another incident at the famous 1982 Year 10 Camp involved
one student (now a staff member!) shooting the clay bird
before it had even left the trap!
1867 valuable documents and gold coins were placed beneath
the foundation stone of what was to become St Paul's
Technical School in Lydiard St. Apparently they remain
there still! Woodwork classes in the basement may have
been different had we known they were there!
favourite brother from the States, Br Greg Lindeman is one
of very few people who has made several attempts to consume
a fake rubber lamington.
1988 Year 10 Camp a group of students used medical supplies
and good old mercurochrome on one students head to make it
appear that he had been hit from projectiles thrown into
their campsite by others. Other camps had supplies
confiscated for the incident! Unfortunately payback
came in the the form of one of the make up artists later
tripping over a log and dislocating a kneecap, thus unable
to partake in any abseiling or other trip activities.
