If a young Australian kid read that, s/he would assume David was 8 or so! We
call our school grades after their years -

Kinder, Prep, Year 1 (or Grade 1), Year 2 etc. The "B" or "C" qualifier
comes from the teacher's surname initial.

Thus my son, at 8, was in 3W  and my daughter, at 10, was in 5/6M
(composite class).
