Re: Did monitors have any real use?

Were there cases of senior boys who, for whatever reason, were never appointed as a monitor? Yes - in part. For spending a balmy summer Saturday night at Horham fair trying to chat up a girl from Broadbridge Heath who had a Saturday job in Woolworths, on my return (at about 11.30pm) I was given 6 b...

Re: Did monitors have any real use?

Were they not able to give out " Sit-downs " as punishment? I think it was a maximum of two ( 10 minutes ) before you were reported to a master. Nowadays I am not quite sure about using the word master!

Re: On a happier note: The Good Teachers!

There is already a posting called Favourite Teachers on this Forum and so maybe this new thread is doubling up what has been said unless and being pedantic there is a difference between a good teacher and favourite one :P The reason I posted this thread here is because over a long period of time a ...

On a happier note: The Good Teachers!

They were in the majority. I'll start: Gerald Davies. Being taught English by him was a bit strange, Shakespeare in a Welsh accent. But on the rugby pitch I loved every moment. He never said much but I remember that he told me one day that I could be good at rugby. Those few words coming from him pi...

Re: Housey Rap, recent convictions

Presumably an age thing.

But personally I believe the subject to be so serious that this type of post should not be here.

Re: How far did the rot spread?

Ha Ha! Same old right-wing crap. Politics of envy! Are you prepared to pay the tax necessary Julian to give all the schools the facilities that the public schools have? Where do we start? What about the playing fields? The state schools might have decent playing fields but I have a feeling that som...

How far did the rot spread?

I am fully aware that for the vast majority of pupils being at CH was the chance of a lifetime. At the very least it was for some a roof to sleep under and food on the table. But for those of us who just wanted to be at home with Mum and Dad? Those of us who were constantly homesick. Those of us who...

Re: Date of sentencing of Webb and Burr

I strongly object to the word peccadilloes being used to explain away a crime otherwise known as sexual abuse. Likewise to JR there is no such thing as master/pupil relationships in the sense that it was once again sexual abuse and nothing else.

CH and flu

During my time at CH ( late sixties early seventies ) I recall that some if not all of the pupils took part in an early trial injection against flu. All I know is that since that injection I have never had flu and rarely a cold. Anyone else remember anything about this?

Apart from the fact that Sweden has never had a female prime minister. Which is a shame because women make better leaders.

Re: Politics

On the other hand leaving the EU is quite an interesting experiment which I am sure will be followed closely by millions of Euro sceptics in other European lands. Not really being affected by the country leaving it is quite pleasant to sit on the side-line and watch. First Thatcher and now May...wha...

Food at CH

The other day I was telling my children about life at CH and we started talking about the food that was served, and I have found that my memory fails me on this subject. I remember that the amount of food served was adequate, sometimes better sometimes not so good. The one thing that I remember well...

Re: Poor disciplinary C.H. staff

J.R. seems by speaking his mind 'upset' some people, but that is not his fault in fact it is the education from CH that is at fault! A post of his nearly eleven years ago makes this plain.
