The rewards of learning

I was born out of the black dust of Walgett country, in far north-western NSW, with a mostly indigenous population. There wasn't much learning going on at school. Rather, like other kids in Walgett and Dubbo, I learned how to smoke pot, drink, steal cars and wag school. But through a cousin I learned about St Joseph's College, in Sydney's Hunters Hill. With the help of my parish priest I was sponsored and enrolled there. Before going to Joey's I couldn't read or write. I had no idea of the rewards that come from learning - wisdom, knowledge and an opportunity to serve my people - Craig Ashby
