Here Simone talks about having less opportunity of learning with a narrow curriculum
TranscriptIn terms of lessons, the lessons we did was Maths, English, Commerce, Typing, Jewish studies, same Science each year for about six years, and lots of Jewish studies. There was no Humanities, no Languages and no sort of broader Sciences, so therefore we had a very narrow curriculum and few opportunities. And I remember not really being taught – very stretched, you know, I found a lot of the lessons were pretty boring. I used to go for these Physiotherapy sessions and I remember sitting in front of a mirror where we had to eat a yogurt and I always remember it, always running out the room and I remember always thinking, you know, why wasn’t my mum and dad teaching me how to eat a yogurt, why did I have to go into this room and be taught how to eat a yogurt?
