Oh remember domestic science in that room. Those wooden top tables had to be scrubbed after use. The apron and hair band we made in our first year and lasted till our 4th year. Made of off white calico edged in a coloured check material denoting the ‘house team’ you were in.

One of first cookery lessons..making breakfast, poached eggs on toast, then bacon eggs, you progressed to cakes, stews puddings and finally Christmas cake and puddings and bread. None of the open a packet stuff!
Happy days
