Handbags (The sad, the bad and the ugly. Non-productive stuff here.)
JR: LOL! Yes, we were kept strictly apart, but it's the way things were back then.
I think the houses changed to female names in or around 1964.
I was definitely NOT one of those nasty girls because as you were starting in 1965 I was leaving, and my brother was just one year behind me, so you wouldn't have known him either but, trust me, those girls would have been punished as well as the teachers were just as strict as the boys' teachers.
Whilst there I, like many others, hated school; but now thinking back, we were given a good education and we had a varied curriculum. However, I was hopeless at maths, but I excelled in English comprehension and French, for which I have been very grateful and has kept me in work for the last 55 years.
