|So that is 5 'net enabled' friends and school mates from the same year. Plus others.
Some memorable quotes....
When in Drama with Mr Shuker, pupils would ask him what to do and he would reply "Improvise !"
The Technical Drawing teacher of the day (terrible memory) would get us to chant;
"7, 7, 7, all good boys go to heaven", "30, 30, do it wrong and
you'll get hurty" in relation to the border on an isometric drawing. I learnt a
lot of engineering discipline there. Thank.
|Oh' and a lot of fond memories that have suddenly come flooding back.
The Quadrangle, no running,
Mr Valelley - the ex forces sports teacher, coming 8th
in 'the Powergame' (a junior version of the 'Great Egg Race' from Granada TV) with my brother and Earl Taylor.
The 'man fish' that was Nickolas Slack, banned
from the swimming gala for being too good and always with an ear infection.
Lesley Prescot - the girl of my dreams.
My stolen 'O'level woodwork project.
Maths with the teacher allergic to chalk dust.
David Slater, Edward Hollowood.
Whatever happened to those days?
Thanks for the memories.
Chris Keller - Jackson (I was then called Twinnie - as you might expect !)
