Turn Back Time...

Well, Cher sang it...who could forget it? What an outfit..well, a leather belt covering bits and a leather jacket...sailors on a ship..a big gun to sit on...hu hummmmm....

Anyhow.... today I got to tour my old High School and stepped into the gymnasium that I had not entered for 20years! The place seemed so big when I was there, now it does not. I have to say, I have not grown so much in height since the age of 16 either. The woodwork room even seemed to be smaller in size...it still had the scent I loved when I created some cool things.
Tom starts High School next year right there, and some of the teachers are still there who taught me. The ones who came to the reunion, some of them were there, but there were others that had not come to the reunion and it was nice to catch up with them.
Lots of changes have been made to programmes and so much to do with the environment, a horticultural area..planting deciduous plants for the Year 7's and there is even a chook penn... they use the eggs in Home Eco and/or sell the eggs to fund the whole programme.
The Government has granted a $2M alotment of moneys towards a Science Centre...used for the Junior High School Students and also up and coming grade 6's from surrounding Primary Schools... I am so pleased to see that. Mainly because my kids love their experiments and Science and number crunching.
Anyway, today has been a happy day and the Sun is shining and what more could you ask for?

"I have not grown so much in height"

You should not give gay men such an opportunity to make a bitchy crack about growing.

How lovely that he will be going to the same school he attended. My boy also starts high school next year. They're growing up too fast.

I went to my first high school reunion in August and it was amazing. NOBODY had changed a bit, we were all still as mental as we were back then.

We know time is passing too quickly when they start planning school reunions...
