    Default Your First Year at High/Secondary School

    Can you remember it? What you'd heard about it!? One of my abiding memories is all my mates said they where going to wear tiesthe "thin-way" ... only a samll handfull did and anyway first day the Teachers said "anyone wearing their tie in such a fashion will be made to change it and re-tie it properly after in their Form-Room" ......

    That stringent policy of it not being allowed to have your tie as so lasted for about 3 weeks and loads of us took it turns to "risk it" as so in the first few weeks. Dunno how they thought they could enforce it though when nearly every other kid in every other year had their ties as so

    I remember being told before I went that all first years would get their heads flushed down the toilet. It never happened. Does anyone know of anybody who did get their head flushed down the toilet or is it a true urban myth?!

    No defenitly an Urban Myth I think Trickyvee, but as I say if you copied the 5th Years in how you did your tie (thin) the same length as they had thrir's woe-bite you!

    wear a tie the thin way i donyt understand mate.

    i could not do my tie so i got someone to do it for me.

    thing was i did it in such a way i never had to open my tie completely.

    i just moved the knot up and down like when i did games i loosened it then when it was time to go to other classes i just tightened it again.
