Swimming

Our senior school was amalgamated with another one and so they decided to to rebuild science and craft blocks and a sports block with a swimming pool! The great thing was that we got to do life saving skills as well as learning to canoe!

That was the time years ago when governments spent money on schools and education…. And it was good because children who couldn’t afford it got to learn to swim. I wish that austerity hadn’t cur so many services now.

  1. I was in school at that time too – I went sailing twice a week from our ordinary comprehensive school. It was awesome! Now they make 6 year old sweat blood for SATS tests and force teachers to spend more time proving that they taught something than they do actually teaching it. How did we mess this up so much?
