White:3 facts about my personality
Oh dear… can we just sum it up as me being weird?
1. I’m a very moody person. I try to be cheerful, but I will...
thanks for explaining! that makes sense, given that the stations are all out in the middle of nowhere, right? also, and please tell me if i’m wrong, but are stations basically the same thing as what we call a ranch?
I guess so? We have cattle stations and sheep stations and goat stations. And it’s just… a huge area where animals mill around and do their thing until they get rounded up and taken to auction.

I just got a phone call to remind me that I’m meant to be in the city now, so you only get five :p
[[So this isn’t a helicarrier school]]
Fic where, to get around the threat of agents having their families targeted by baddies, there’s a school room on the helicarrier and part of your physio to be returned to active duty is being the govvie for a month because SHIELD just struggles to keep govvies until the end of their contracts. It’s something about the explosions and the crashing into the ocean all the time that puts them off.
There was just about nothing of #2 that I understood. Aussie thing?
i would never expect you to double up on answers. so that’s totally cool. and since i’m a dumb American, what do you mean by School of the Air lessons? (i’m going to assume that it has to do with being in remote areas, but that’s as far as i’ll go)
Whoops, sorry! I wasn’t thinking about international audiences when I typed that out.
School of the Air is like… government run home school for kids who can’t go to school because they live too far away get workbooks and reading materials sent out to them for each term. They have some lessons over Skype (used to be over the radio, and I think still is in places that don’t have satellite internet access) and the program is run through a school at the nearest regional centre (so some SotA programs are better than others, or some coordinators might be more sympathetic to station schedules interfering with the school timetable than others). Usually the kids will have a few skype lessons with the teacher a week, and work with their governess (or a parent if one is available, but govvies seem to be preferred because it gets the kids used to learning from new people). So kids might have a choir lesson and a language lesson and a math lesson over Skype, and then the rest is more independent.
Most stations have a school room set up, with desks and a computer and craft supplies etc, and the kids go over there every day for about six hours to do their lessons. The governess keeps them on track and explains stuff and talks to the coordinators etc about any learning issues the kids might be having. It has the same curriculum as the public schools in the state (or territory), so in theory the kids aren’t disadvantaged when it comes to what they’re being taught. They also have ‘school days’ every term, where they go to the regional centre and hang out in a group and have a sports day and rehearse and play together and stuff.
Oh, and SotA only covers primary school. Station kids have to go away to boarding school for secondary stuff, so the govvies also have the job of trying to prepare these kids more rigid classrooms and expected behaviour in dining halls and treating the uniform with respect etc.
I HAVE SO LITTLE IDEA OF WHAT IT WOULD BE ABOUT.
At first I was thinking that maybe Clint runs a pokemon day care, because I can see him being someone who trains and shapes and nurtures. Also, I can see it being a job for people who like pokemon more than other people, because you’d just be on your own working with pokemon all day. And then I thought maybe Kate comes and hangs around (maybe it’s an area out of town and Clint is the closest to a cool person she can hang with?) and tries to get Clint to teach her stuff and he always refuses but she picks stuff up anyway?
But as for some kind of plot, I got nothing.
