Boxed Memories 3

In the boxes I came across just one School Report, and it was mine, aged six.

In every subject but one, the comment was GOOD. In Art, I was Very Good, showing great promise (!).These fairly begrudging comments were for a pupil who came FIRST in her class! Yes, I was FIRST!!

Please note, children today, what teachers were like in our day!

I bet this memorabilia is all fascinating. It was especially interesting to read about your school report. I used to be first in class too! It all seems so unfair by today's standards - how did it feel to be bottom all the time? On the plus side, I can't help feeling that our standards of reading, writing and 'rithmetic were better. No one left my school, at 11, without being able to read.

Jan - I agree. The pressure must have been great on those lower down in the class. But you are right - at least even the worst could happily read/write/'rithmatic when they left!
