Things We Remember From School!

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by JANICE199, Jul 7, 2009.


  1. Now i know i am one of the young ones lol but i grew up in the country so i think things were still in the dark ages ;)..

    Izal loo paper

    nit nurse

    milk n digestives (or if we were really lucky coconut rings)

    navy gym knickers with a knicker pocket for your hankie

    punishment was to sit on the pink stairs (in a dark unused corner of the old school house by the attic! - they couldnt hit us but they could scare us!)

    you played outside come rain or shine or snow

    school was open no matter what the weather was doing, if that meant trudging across the fields in 5ft snow then so be it!

    sun always shon on school holidays

    school caretaker dressing up as father christmas and giving everyone a pencil!

    school assemblies went on for hours while we sat with numb bums on cold floors singing hymns

    the whole school took part in the village christingle celebration

    decorating the classrooms at christmas with homemade paperchains

    10p pocket money bought you sweets that lasted AGES!

    at senior school nipping to the chippy for chips n scraps (bits of batter) for 50p
