Yuk, no I don't remember that but I do remember marking out a square yard of grass and watering it with potasium permanganate to get the worms to come up so we could disect them in Biology. I loved Biol but that was the worst lesson ever, cos I don't like worms! :cry:

yes and we all know what his nickname was :lol:

he was half Swedish and his first name was Norris, he left after a year, gave me an excellent report though :D

Mr Griffin caught the snake on Carrs near the river, with his face it terrified the snake :lol:

Mr Zanker was there for more than a year he took me for my gse biology and I despised him, he told the whole class he would get us all through our exam so he would become head of science. Think that was the first and most important time I cut my nose off to spite my face :cry:

Miss Charles was my Head of House, she was head of Eastwood House
She was also my maths teacher and she kept a slipper in her cupboard which she would use with force especially when in a foul mood. When we had double maths lessons we used to play pass the slipper and if you talked without permission the slipper would end up on your desk and if the bell went and you had the slipper she would whack you with it.

I remember the outside walls of the Volleyball/Squash courts having three foot letters in red paint which read

F*** 0ff Ellis and Griffin is a Moron written across the walls

Why a W? Not for Whiteman cos he was Head of Rutland. Am I missing something? I remember Mr Skinner but don't remember his slipper!
