I wonder if someone can come up with the whole list of families who had lived in this house!
Each time I revisit my mother school I see this house and I can hear the children's voices and even imagine the tricycles they rode along the safe roads in the school compound....and I really relish the thought that we stduents never really trespassed (e.g. hang around the unfenced compound) . Without fences we had an "imaginary out of bounds" delineation!
I remember when I entered Form One I was exhilarated by my own "educational success" and felt top of the world for a year. Learning was such a "freedom" gained for me. I could sail into a unknown and uncharted sea and let my imagination run wild!! I absorbed everything the teachers taught us and especially science. I read the amazing book by Tom Dooley and realised how important it was to have democracy and freedom.

Those were the days....what are your thoughts of your former school and its compound?
