    Back in the 1970s, we had two first graders that taught at my high school in the southern suburbs of Sydney.

    Jimmy Lisle - 5/8 for the Rabbits.

    Rick Bourke - fullback for the Sharks.

    There must be more. Feel free to add.

    Father John Cootes taught me French (the language) at St Peter Pheils, Newcastle
    He was asked to leave when he got up a club act and his signature song was "Help Me Make it Through the Night"
