SKIVING

Not long after the theatre was built and the arrival of Duncan Noel Paton, our last lesson on a saturday morning was drama. Some kids loved it but not me and my mates,it was a bit too much for us "manly " types. For several weeks we would skive off down doctors lake , far better smoking and "fishing...

TV , MEDIA AND NEWSPAPERS

At CH I Felt I had no connection with the outside world. My knowledge of ongoing matters during the 70's is very poor except for rock music and sport. Firstly I would like to thank the following boys for their musical tastes . Tony Price (Supertramp) , Guy Bohane ( Stevie Wonder) and Steve Barrett (...

Re: Uniform

I PRESUME I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THOUGHT THAT THE HOUSEY COATS WERE BLACK ,SO WHY IS IT A BLUE COAT SCHOOL ? The two housey coats I've got in my house at the moment are definitely navy blue. Maybe I am colour blind , but all my photos look like black,and wearing them for 6 years I would bet quit...

WHO STOLE MY BIKE ?

If you were around in 1975 then it might be you ! I don't care now, but it must have been someone on the staff list or perhaps a jealous teacher's offspring ( weird phrase) who fancied it. If I had it back now, it would be highly unlikely it would be ridden by anyone ,so if you still have it forget ...

Re: Uniform

I think everyone turns their nose up at the uniform when first trying it on , but personally it was probably the clothing I was most comfortable in,even now 30 years later ! AS LONG AS THE SCHOOL IS ALIVE THE UNIFORM SHOULD NEVER CHANGE. I loved the britches, so comfortable and easy to wear,the bagg...
