PREP AND PRIMARY SCHOOL
To be honest, I never liked school very much. I believed then, and believe now, that anyone who maintains that schooldays are the happiest days of your life might as well shoot themselves in their final year. Or maybe their first year. Mostly, it only gets better when you leave. Also, I understand ever better the saying that education is what's left when you've forgotten everything you learned at school. The main reasons for this page are to illustrate just how much things have changed in 60 years, and perhaps to evoke the occasional spark of nostalgia or merely of shared memory: yes, it really was that bad.
