Your ar­ti­cle on [in­com­ing Gov­er­nor of Queens­land] Paul de Jersey and his wife Kaye (“Re­gal Ea­gle, July 12-13) con­firms that Paul, a quiet and hum­ble man, hasn't changed one bit from the days when he at­tended [in­ner-west Bris­bane's] Ithaca Creek State School in 1960 and 1961. “Place­ment” in class af­ter term ex­ams was so very im­por­tant to us. How­ever, when Paul joined our class in 1960, there was no com­pe­ti­tion – the head of class be­longed to Paul. Hav­ing Paul in our midst en­cour­aged us to try our best and the com­pe­ti­tion didn't do any harm at all. Mar­garet Hels­don (née Le­francke), High­fields
