As the time for me to leave approaches, I – choke – think of those past events most dear to me: partly because I realise the surroundings in which they took place will soon be inaccessible, but mainly because we need another paragraph.
For example, way back in my first year I remember:
- The first day of initiation.
- Nothing else.
However, the most amazing part of the four years was the time during the days when we could leave school at any time during the day to go home: recline on a bed and listen to the radio. YES, the “O” Grades.
To finish, I would like to thank all these teachers who have already contributed tpwards my education, and all those yet to suffer”. F.M.
“I think that the belt should be kept in schools because the belt is much quicker, it lasts about 10 -15 minutes then the pain is gone. Not like words and meanings or lines, you could be in all night writing them out. Even then, it takes a lot out of the teachers mind, the belt does.”
“I think the belt should be banned from school. I think that when you are giving somebody the belt, that it only encourages them to do it more often. It won’t help the person”.
“I think the belt should be kept. The boy that gets lines it takes about an hour, or he even gets someone else to do it. It would be better to give the belt so that he gets it and no one else”.
“I think the belt should be banned from schools. On Thursday of last week a boy was belted so hard his hand just about fell off. Surely lines would be better than a boy’s hand falling off”.
Five children of Queensferry Primary School P4, 5, 6 and 7, were interviewed by High School Pupils.
“Most of them liked their school and teacher but not the headmaster’s authority. They all had the same impression about their first day at the High School; either you get “beaten up” or have your head flushed down the toilet. None of them liked school uniform, particularly the High Schools one.
“On Monday, April 29th at 12.46pm five boys and two girls from an anonymous third year class broke out of Bathgate Colditz. Mysterious Jimmy G--------------, Whitey, Midget, Addie, Archie, Corgi and bunny.
Exhausted they marched on and on and on and --------
Final, final, blow: they had to hand over the 2p change to Herr Kapitan Syme.”
“ Standing on the wall,
Waiting for to pounce
Ready for his prey,
Prepared for battle.
Below the unsuspecting bird,
Greedily eats stale bread,
Not knowing what will happen.
A little blood, feathers, All over.
Savage Tom Cat”.

“When I was young,
I had some fun,
Running up the railway line.
Then a teenager,
I walked up and down,
Pushing a pram,
All around town.
When I was old,
I had some gold,
An old, grey stone.”
