correspondence class

these are not my cousins.

When I was growing up three of my cousins would spend half of the year on a remote sheep station in the outback. They did their school via correspondence. I suppose I  was only ever there in the school holidays so I never saw it in action, but that old radio with its clunky earphones looks so mysterious and I never quite understood how the far away teacher would know if they were there or not. 
Anyhow over the next four weeks on Tuesday mornings I will be giving some open art and science classes for children and on Wednesdays I will be setting up my own correspondence school with all the information accessible to anyone. No clunky earphones needed.
