From the Headmaster's Desk


During the course of this term, I read Richard Flanagan’s extraordinary novel, The Narrow Road to the Deep North. It tells the story of Dorrigo Evans, a young doctor from Tasmania, who is captured by the Japanese during the Second World War and tries to keep his men alive under horrific conditions during the building of the Burma Railway. The novel traces his life before, during and after the war, and considers the very nature of courage and heroism. It is a deeply moving work of art which refuses to simplify complex issues, considering both Australian and Japanese viewpoints. Everyone loses from the war and its impact continues forever in the lives of the people who lived through it.
