Title

Remember examinations?

Date

December 1950

Description

A light-hearted look at end-of-year examinations from the first volume of Kardinia, the Geelong Teachers' College magazine. The image celebrates the first round of final examinations for the College's foundation year students.
This edition includes photographs, sports results and articles (both serious and satirical) that highlight the year's events. The magazine committee write that the College's beginnings have not been without their "difficulties. Some we have surmounted, some we have not but we leave it in the hands of succeeding students to carry on where we have left off."
To the College's first "Exies", the Principal, L.G. Whiteoak, poses the following questions: "Are you fully aware of the exalted place the teacher must strive to fill in the community? Are you conscious of the serious responsibility laid upon your shoulders, and have you acquired a determination to make yourself entirely worthy of that responsibility?"
