Thinking of possibly adding another feature to the School Spirit strip, and wondering what the thoughts of some of you more vocal readers may be. More than several of the strips in the archive directly reference particular songs, poems, ballads or stories of Australian origin and culture, so I’ve been thinking about adding a section where those kinds of references can be located, read and hopefully enjoyed.

Of course any material displayed will be suitably attributed to the original authors (some probably stretching back to the late 1800s), but I’m not entirely sure whether this sort of material would be of benefit to a webcomic. At the same time, I’m also thinking ‘why not? There must be people out there reading who are interested in some of the background cultural references that give the strip some of its flavour’.

I’ll think on it over the next week or so, but I’ll leave you with this question. Would any of you be interested in a School Spirit library of texts such as this?
