As I was saying, I have been rummaging through stuff at my Mum’s and I also came across this school report of mine from 1966. By this stage, I was in Form 1, which is Grade 7 in the new money. I think I was cheated frankly … I recall being very good at arithmetic but I do think it is historically interesting.
I have not picked the term in which my form teacher wrote in General Remarks: “It is a pleasure to look at her happy, healthy face.” The teacher would probably be charged with something these days.
It must have taken the teachers some time to write these reports: I had a form teacher, but a different teacher for French, Science, Art, Craft and PE.
I’m not sure what ‘learning greater tolerance towards others in the class’ was all about. The teacher seemed to have forgotten all about this in Term 3.
