    Another one we had - was you had to either get your Dinner Tickets for the week - first thing on a Mon - from either Lower or Upper School, pending on location of "said Teacher/Dinner Lady/Bursa who was in charge that week" ande irf you lost one had to re-apply to another member of Staff ...... again at a certain time only

    I have these details lodged in my "put together via Computer" booklet I have described/talked about a fair few times on the forums! The thing is without doubt a wreck and falling to pieces and has been for the last 18 years but is a minefield of info

    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.

    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 am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    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

    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!!!

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

    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?
