From 1964 to 1970
I went to St Andrew’s School when it was in George Street from 1964 to 1970. My friends were Kirsten Schlesinger, Ashley Cox and Jean Arnold. I loved my school days, especially the entertainments and plays we put on; the games we played of Batman and Robin – I was always Cat Girl. I remember that a boy called Joe arrived from the USA to join our class; he was fun and taught us all new games. I remember playing ‘beads’ with the girls, but also British Bulldog, and of course how could I forget kiss and chase.

Milk in a wigwam
We kept pet guinea pigs in our classrooms and got to take them home on weekends. The best times were at Christmas, when every class had a special Christmas party. I remember too that there were special trips and special activities. In my final year we went on a day trip to France to Bolougne. The most bizarre thing I remember was student teachers helping us to make a class wigwam during a project on American Indians. If you did good work you were allowed to drink your daily milk sitting with a friend inside the wigwam. Funny the things you remember.
