    Default Last day at school

    Who can remember their final day at school?
    I can't remember much of my last day but part of it was spent picking litter up, then going into a class and just spending the day not doing much.
    WELCOME TO HELL!!!

    I did one year in the sixth form and, as I recall, was sitting and resitting exams in May and June, and not at school every day. So I can't actually recall a specific day when I looked back at the place and thought, 'that's it'.

    At primary school we had a disco on the afternoon of the last day.

    For some reason at my secondary school there was a tradition of having a "foam fight" on the school field, were people sprayed each other with shaving foam. I didn't really both with that.

    As my last ever lesson as Home Econimics we were allowed to bring in food for a party. My school also had a prom as the Manchester Airport Hilton.

    My last day at school was doing a GCSE exam. Ours was the first year of GCSEs. I remember that one of the first questions on the Geography exam paper that year (1988) gave a grid reference that wasn't on the map on the paper.

    My final exam wasn't Geography, I can't recall exactly what it was now, but I remember leaving the school thinking 'Well, that's it!' no more school. It was 13th June.

    Last day for me was 26th May 1989 (apart from going back to do the A Level exams).

    Morning was spent hanging around the school and then a leavers assembly before being released at lunchtime. Then it was a couple of halfs in the pub before the leavers ball on the night and getting drunk whilst also trying to find out what was happening in the Liverpool v Arsenal title decider.

    Hard to believe it was 21 years ago.

    My last day at school was pretty uneventful. I basically went in, done my last exam in the morning, picked up my woodwork piece and that was it. No goodbye's from the teachers, no goodbye's from the others in my year. I'm having a school reunion next year, so perhaps I'll be able to say goodbye then, (well 24 years later)
    Oh to be a kid again with a can of Top Deck on a hot summer day, now that would be good.

    We signed each others shirts and year books and took a few photo's

    walked past several ties tied to trees and railings on the way home, a few rebels even burned theirs.

    35 years ago I walked around our junior school playground with Mark Farrell saying goodbye to all the benches, then 5 years later in 1980 I went in first thing, got my leaving certificate signed and was out by about 10.00. No real goodbyes or anything. Anyway I expected to be back at the 6th form after the summer holidays but a few weeks later I got a last minute place at our local college so I never did go back. It was all rather uneventful in the end for such a chunk of my childhood
