Sue will be late home tonight• • • • Sue's missing tea tonight. Like last night and the night before. She's skipping her netball practice, her friends. And she looks it.

We're not learning properly, we're cramming. We're not analysing, we're regurgitating. But it doesn't have to go on. Talk to your class mates - talk over how much you're expected to do. And why. You'll find most of them agree with you. And are quite prepared to work together to fight this situation. Speak up - its your future. SPEAK UP for more info, see the Education officer, c/- Studass office.
