Went to Hamilton Technical College, did a business course. Then did twelve months at Brains Commercial College. Enjoyed College, had friends from primary school, strictly run but you knew where you stood with the teachers, respected them. Made a lot of friends there; considered these friends her social circle, included her church friends. Ambition at high school was to be a hairdresser, ended up being a secretary, her friend who wanted to be a secretary ended up hairdressing. Depression did not affect her education. Had left school by the time World War Two began.
