Okay REDACTED, I believe ... since I last saw
       you, you’ve had one lot of school holidays and you’ve also had work
       experience?
Yeah, that’s right
So what did you do?
Ahh, for work experience, I worked as a grounds keeper at
       REDACTED .. just like mostly gardening ...
       which I didn’t really like very much .. disappointed in that one
Mmm hmm
And quite quite boring
Hard work?
Yeah, Yeah, definitely; like long hours; had to get up real early and
       all that
How long was that for?
Um, that went for four days ... from from um ... Tuesday ‘til about
       Friday
Right, and did you choose that yourself or did somebody select that
       for you?
Yeah, oh, I chose that myself, but I didn’t think it would just be
       like all gardening because I mostly just did one .. the same thing
       for like all .. for the whole four days but .. I thought it’d be just
       all different kinds of things and that
Mmm
And a bit more fun than I thought it would be
Yeah
Yeah
So, given the choice, you’d choose something else next time?
Yeah, definitely
Did you have a contact there, or did you just .. approach them
       yourself?
Oh, well my, because I play golf there as well, and same with my dad,
       and he, and he’s got board of .. in the board and um ... and um and
       he asked the .. manager if I could .. get some work experience there
       and ... and they were fine; they accepted it
Mmm
Yeah
Oh that’s good; Well, what did you do over the holidays?
Um ... nothing much, just mostly played basket ... and golf ... and
       that’s about it; just had a few friends over once; went and saw
       movies and that
Yeah, what movies did you see?
Um ... I think  saw Beavis and Butthead ... do America and that was
       was really good
Yeah
Yeah, it was really funny ... I liked that one
Yeah ... and you didn’t, you didn’t see any others?
Um ... not that I can think of, I can’t really remember
You’re not into the Star Wars trilogy at all?
Um .. I was hoping to see that once, but .. there was other movies
       that I wanted to see ‘n that .. but I was .. I didn’t really mind if
       I didn’t see it
Yeah .. yeah .. Have you ever seen .. Star Wars on the big screen?
No, no I haven’t .. well I I’ve seen ‘em all like on the TV and that
Yeah
Just not on the movies
Yeah
So
Mmm ‘cause I think I was about .. ten or eleven when they first came
       out
Yeah
On the big screen

 So ... it’s good that they’ve come out again .. I guess
Yeah
Mmm And .. when’s the next lot of holidays? They must be coming up
       soon?
Um .. Well, we’ve got exams starting next Tuesday and they go for
       four days and then ... um .. I think we have a few more days .. where
       we have school but ... only about three I think and then .. it’s
       three weeks for holidays
Right
Yeah
Do you feel prepared for your exams?
Umm .... not really yet right ... um I got heaps of studying to do o
       over the .. um right what this weekend coming up especially
Mmm
Yeah ... Heaps of studying
Mmm
Mmm
Which exam are you worried about the most?
Umm ... prob’ly .. maths .. at the moment .. and .. and .. and
       science. They’re the two main ones that I wanna pass
Right
‘Cause ‘cause I’m not going too well in them
Right, yeah
Yeah
And .. between now and the exams .. which are next week, do you have
       any assignments or essays or projects that you’ve got to finish as
       well?

       for graphics ... just other .. little .. bits of work that we have to
       do for other different subjects .. oh, heaps to do .. cause like
       they’re mostly letting us study now for home work ‘n’ that
Mmm, that’s good
Yeah, it is good, yeah
And what sort of things are you doing in science at the moment ...
