    Re: School Rules (Specifically Those Unique To Your School)

    If we wore Button Down Shirts like Ben Sherman ("chancing" it instead of an ordinary Asda etc Shirt and hiding "said Ben Sherman Logo" we had to have/do the Buttons down too!

    Another was no Coloured T-Shirts or in-particular like Red Footy shirts showing under a White School Shirt!!

    As my first Secondary gave you an amazing choice of White, Grey or Sky Blue Shirts - me being me .... I'd sure have relished the challenge to gottan round that contravention of the rules!!

    Rule 768: Don't go to school for Health and Safety reasons - (well, I did go through a "school refusal" and "school phobia" phrase from Year 10 onwards).

    Another answer to this Mulletino mate was like me, you did your Tie thin - make it just a few stripes/CMs long - "easy as", as fat Kipper Ties as most at mine prefered if busted/clocked for thin (though i did'nt - I prefered Ultra-long proper that could be converted into fake-thin), most Kipper ties I recall became more prone to CDT Machines chomping them up - so yeah I guess that was a reason that certain teachers 9not english, Math) turned a Blind-Eye to thin!! I don't know if you found this
    tho - did you mate?!!

    Lathe?, is that another name (regional) for a piece of CDT Equipment I don't know of/am un-aware of of Tex mate?

    It's a funny one - that we had was in CDT - like my good friend Mulletino will testify is we had to tuck our whole tie in the Shirt in case it got chopped in a machine - usualy too into the first button - though Art never cared for u wrecking our Ties in numerous "paint fights" - though the good things over CDT and having o that was we could do our ties "fake thin" where you tied it immensley long as an be on the proper side and just wore the thin side out or tucked in below the 1st Button if you could and showd the part of the Tie that altered from narrow to wide after the stitching as they cou;d'nt prove it was thin due to the unusual fact you was useing the narrow part for the knot that in-effect was thinner than the thin side (strangely enough). Though some hard'nt cases tucked theirtes in very lower anbd got in bother for it/through it and then amazingly years later (2000/2001) it lead to a new (to my knowledge full time trend) of and full time interpretation of wearing it at School all day as Andy and Robert did in "the Mrs Strictland era of Emmerdale"!!

    We had Aprons for Art, H.E and Woodwork/Craf-work/ etc but for art it was'nt as much a "need be" I don't know why, but as you say the Tie, I found that the Apron/Jumper offered nol offered no protection!, so for practicals the entire would go in the top button if the Shirt - even if you had j done it thin or correct (with either side over either), like Andy on Emmerdale 20000/2001 (Circa the Mrs Strickland era)
    For Health and Safety reasons, understandably one couldn't use one's Home Economics apron for woodwork and all that - there was even a time when an old shirt would do for Art (not the school uniform shirt that you would be wearing from the start of the day of course). PE Kit was also Health and Safety as well - the right type or trainers or plimsolls - not one's school shoes.

    Strickland - strict-land methinks?

    Well pending where exactly - if it was showing!

    I agree on the cold-ness of the workshops here Mulletino

    In practicals regardless of our tie being worn thin - the whole tie thin in front of thick would get shoved in the top 2 Shirt Buttons

    Thinking further/farther about the rules - I have some in a decrepid old book we got on Induction Day that 1 day I keep promising to up-load on here (as long as nobody knows the place of the school - though it's demolished now) though I dunno neither/either if they was real rules, but yeah they are a great read lol

    Sadly though I may have to "Doctor" the pics of the place (School Buildings etc) to avoid any additional querries as to the place might be established as where it was and that'd be an hard task given the perilous nature of the (shall we say document) as it was made on even cheap paper then thirty plus years back with binder esq holing to feed through - that's probably none existant on the poor thing now Lol!!!

    Another we had - was at Football in PE, if it was cold enough to be allowed to wear Trakkies/Joggers, they only could be the old Padded Goalie kind (and even though you had to be goalie) lol

    For some reason I really enjoyed a classroom with a new carpet laid down - it felt really refreshing. Pity that it wasn't going to stay like that for too long.

    Reminded me of the new portable classrooms at Infant School.

    I remember after we had a new carpet fitted in our classroom, we weren't allowed to wear our shoes in there. We had to wear plimsolls that hadn't been worn outside or just walk around in our socks. Also I remember, when requesting a new school jotter from our teacher, being told I couldn't have one due to cutbacks. I was told to look back through the used pages and find space to write. I had to draw a line to separate the work I was doing from the work that had already been done.
