Heartbreak High Episode 156
Kurt and Paul are building a solid friendship. They make a great doubles rowing team and think they might be able to compete in the Schoolboy State title. Anita (Lara Cox), determined to get to know Paul better, invites him to the Shark Pool after training and Paul readily accepts. But when Anita gives in to a spontaneous urge to kiss him, Paul pulls away. Anita is confused until Paul sets her straight when he reveals he is gay. Kurt is shocked and, unable to conceal his homophobic attitude, their training suffers.
Nat (John Walton) sets a communications assignment for the class. The students are to pair up and write a series of letters to each other, pretending they're in Australia at the turn of the century. Sarah's crush on Ryan is growing and she is disappointed when he chooses another partner for the assignment. But Lee devises a way for Sarah to vent her passion by writing a series of love letters - with an unknowing Ryan as the subject. Lee decides to play Cupid and puts Sarah's love letters in Ryan's locker.
When Nikki takes a job helping out in the school canteen, she is astounded by the lack of health food available to students. She takes her concerns to Barnett and together they decide that the only way to promote healthy eating is to eliminate junk food altogether. Having to eat a Hunza pie is the last straw for the carnivorous Drazic (Callan Mulvey). With D'espo's (Mario Gamma) enterprising drive, the boys set up a pie and hot dog cart on the school grounds and are inundated with lunch orders. Di Barnett (Andrea Moor) is not impressed, and a visit from police demanding to see D'espo's street vendor's licence is enough to close the business down.
