The kids are starting at the local Catholic school, Star of the Sea. About half of all Aussie kids attend non-public schools, and the Government subsidizes the choice..Uniforms mandatory, including sun hats…Individual uniforms identify school affiliation. Very Brit….
Then, on returning home in the rain, we find this five foot PYTHON (ISYN!) in the front garden..A good luck omen for the school year, or perhaps something more sinister…?

PS- Watch out for those pythons now…ddu
Serpentine proof- I risked life n’ limb to record this….
