Welcome January 03, 2011......Exactly 45 years Ago!
On that historic first day, how did you feel? Were you anxious or were you scared? Did your parents send you to the School and waited for you at the school gate? For the girls, how do you feel about a co-ed class with some strange looking boys? Likewise, for the boys, how do you feel sharing the class with a mixture of girls and being told that we have to behave (I believe DSS gave us a pep talk before that historic day).
If you can recall your feelings (whether good or not so good) on that first day in Anderson School, do share with the group. Please pen us your thoughts, your views, whether any boys or girls disturbed you, etc. Remember it was 45 years ago and 45 years is not going to come by our way again.
To our teachers too, your views and opinions deeply appreciated as well. Do tell us how you felt when you faced this bunch of kids on 3rd January 1966. Did you murmur to yourself OMG?
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
