AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'My name is Stan Harradine and I come from Narrabri, in Northern New South Wales and I am studying at Batchelor College which is about a hundred kilometres from Darwin and I'm studying for the Diploma of Adult Education. There is a big change in my attitude towards learning since I came to Batchelor College with my relationship between myself and teachers. In the past with their attitude towards me I didn't like learning anything. I think they would have to carry some of the blame as well as myself, I thought maybe it was my fault with some of them because of my early experience with teachers. I remember in Kinchela Aboriginal Boys Training Home my life was survival of the fittest because I didn't know what kindness and love was until years later when Frank and Iris White came. I still call her Mum today, they changed my attitude towards most people but I still hold a lot of distrust of people when I feel uncomfortable with them. ...' (Abstract)
