Students too young and unskilled in English expected to learn Asian languages.

I Am firmly opposed to having any dialect of the Chinese People being taught to Primary Schoolchildren within Austalia.
We are not part of China - nor do we have a common border with the Communist Chinese or the Nationalists on Taiwan (Formosa).I am aware that P M Kevin Rudd gets his rocks off speaking ying tong but the majority of people here in the land of OZ do not or cannot afford to trot off willy nilly at any given time,to visit Mao's Mausoleum and take in a feed fried dog fritters.
The one thing we have in common with the Yellow Hordes is - we owe them billions of oz bucks, courtesy of our PM Kevin Rudd( With a name like that he would never get a job at 'Harland and Wolfe'.
There are countless issues that need addressing but learning Chinese at an early age is not a priority and is absolutely ludicrous.
English must be the main Primary subject, because in its self it is a complex language to learn which most Australians have not mastered.
Carmel Tebutt the NSW Health Minister Ia a fair example, Her English is pretty painful.
With regard to myself I doubt if I shall ever reach that pinnacle of learning despite being of English descent.
Having lived in Asia namely Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong collectively for around five years, I was never at a loss when having to communicate with even the lower end of the supposedly, non English speaking bona fide natives.
Unless your future employer is to be the foreign office or an international stock broker OK, However, it is highly unlikely that a trades person, civil or public servant, armed forces and police would find it necessary to waste valuable educational time on some superficial qualification, and at the same time add to the waste of public money.
Now on the other hand and you are far sighted and envisage the imminent or perhaps a later date for the invasion of the Oriental hordes and wish for a bi-lingual tongue to enable yourself to acquire a well paid advisory job as a Quisling in the newly established Ovaleye Republic, then waste your own bloody shekels tosho, learn and pay for the privilege out of Govt time. However, with an entrenched vanguard of about 200,000 English speaking Orientals forming the fith column forcing you out of an envisaged safe job, a job as a cleaner or in retail might be a far better option.

Chris, a young boy then
comes down for breakfast. Since they live on a farm, his mother Rose asks if he has done his chores.

"Not yet," said the little boy Chris .

ROSE tells him no breakfast until he does his chores. Well, he's a little ticked off so when he
feeds the chickens, he kicks a chicken.

When he feeds
the cows, he kicks a cow,

and when he feeds the pigs,
he kicks a pig.

He goes back in for breakfast and his mother Rose gives him a bowl of dry cereal.

"How come I don't get any eggs and bacon, and why don't I have any milk in my cereal?" he asks.

"Well," his mother says, "I saw you kick a chicken, so you don't get any eggs for a week. I saw you kick the pig, so you don't get any bacon for a week either.

I saw you kick the cow so for a week you aren't getting
any milk."

Just then, his father VEST comes down for breakfast and
kicks the cat halfway across the kitchen.

The little boy Chris looks up at his mom Rose with a smile,

and says, "Are you going to tell him or should I?"
Vest said…
Ok Jimmy, this one just made it.
However, these days kicking the cat would not alter the status quo.

St Paul's Grammar School at Penrith NSW has for many years been conducting what we understand is the largest Mandarin Chinese language program in an Australian school. Chinese language studies are compulsory from pre-kindergarten to year 7 and thereafter as an elective subject.
This equips our students for later employment in commerce with china, our major trading partner, for tourism, for international understanding and citizenship in the global village.

Anonymous: Presuming you are the person you say you are who wrote this confusing twaddle, it would have been better to have explained in laymans terms the actual ages of the children concerned involved in this sinister education programme. It appears to me that toddlers entering your school are being taught this Asian language from the word go until reaching the age of twelve, thereafter it becomes an elective subject, would not this be wiser the other way around.
Q: Are your teachers Catholic Nuns expelled from communist China, being paid from the Government handouts which susidise your upmarket Silver tail School where only the robbers of the under dog can afford your fees".
It is a misconception that private shools produce better prepared students for their future foray in the job seekers world. However, it is clear to me why most of your students become middle class layabouts preying on their elders for hand outs and suiciding when the prayers they say fall on deaf ears, this being due to the nonsensicle out dated ecclesiastical waffle implanted in their noddle during their school days.
Your major Australian leader Cardinal Pell appears to me as simply a silly old fart us other people call Mr Blooper. Whereas a person of the lower left order a Ex Garbage Collector, Nathan Rees, is the New South Wales State Premier.

the money VALUE of Happyness ...

Hopefully your marriage produces happiness for all involved. Now, what is that happiness over your life worth in dollars?
Jimmy said…
Professor Paul Frijter of Queensland University of Technology says it is worth $31,600 to the man and $15,600 to the woman, and it may be that the difference is due to the fact that Professor Frijter and two other economists have found that the impact of money on women is double the impact on men.

In my column in The Herald today I explain how the three economists have arrived at a money value for 10 life events, among them marriage, separation, death of a family member and moving house.

It is a serious study they suggest can be used to set compensation levels.
Jimmy said…
Basically the economists have gauged the impact of money gains and losses on individuals' happiness and, so, they can estimate the amount of money needed to restore happiness after an unhappy life event.

By their calculation just $8900 would restore my wife's happiness if we divorced, and I'd need $109,300!

The amounts may seem low because they discovered that money has a greater impact on happiness than previously believed!
Jimmy said…
How important is money to your happiness? Or its absence to your unhappiness?

And can money really compensate anyone for, say, the death of a family member or an injury?

Wally: Re your Q about the R/C Brothers. It is common knowledge and hardly raises an eyebrow when these brothers of the faith are brought to book only too frequently, I would suspect there is a website which collects data worldwide concerning these morons of the clergy.
Mind you Scout Masters are not lagging too far BEHIND.

Jimmy: Not sure what your love and happiness rants have in common with Oriental languages.

Jimmy: Then there are things we must not mention within the guide lines of this blog.
Mind you there are others like myself, down the bottom of Australia who have guidlines like a movable feast. Way back this person requested to copy a joke from my blog. His last request was "Dont put that 'Shit' on my blog" reffering to the 'Gordon The Rooster' joke. Mind you the poor old bugger has just turned 65 and believes he is at deaths door.
Oi if your reading this 'D' the joke you asked for was 'The reversal of life'...... he probably won't remember... it's the fags beer and past flagellation of the whanger that's done it.

Nay Nay Ca: Although I did wave my magic wand in the southern regions of OZ duing WW2, he was not of my loins. Because when he was one year old, after WW2 I was 19 years and four months. Now older than Methuselah 969 divided by 13 = 74 years.

Meaning then a lunar month = one year..confusing ennit.
My fourth 21st will come up soon ...Hopefully.

Too damaged for words.

NO AMOUNT of money can compensate me fo my lost childhood.
I was handed to a religious institution run by Nuns in 1947 at the age of four and a half.
I have struggled with frozen rage all my life.
No amount of money can erase the teeth marks still embedded on the back of church seats, in that little church in Lawson
No amount of money can erase the fear I held in my tiny heart when I hear the clanging of rosary beads bouncing off the long strap hanging from their belts.
Those straps used to flog me when I cried and when I didn't cry.
Those cold baths in winter.
One thin blanket to keep me warm in a dormitory filled with other tiny tots too terrified to make a sound for fear of the sound of those rosary beads and leather straps. No amount of money.

I recieved a letter from the Grandson of the superintendant of the boarding school I attended aged from ten until fifteen and a half.
The Grandson described his Grandfather in terms I myself knew to be true. His arrogance and brutality second to none gave him the name of 'Flogger Campbell' Whose divorced wife, and daughter died at an early age.

Most of the children in the school cemetary were aged between eleven and twelve. Meaning only the hardy Survived the rigours of my school.
