Day Therapy Unit Quiz – Week 24 – Tuesday 22nd September

Hello Quizzers as we head in to Autumn and as the old saying goes “the nights are fair drawin in”.   This week moving away from media and taking you back to school days.  My grannie always used to say “they will be the best days of your life” and wonder whether you would agree as you trawl through the memories.  

Who was your first teacher or the best?  In the game kiss, kick or torture was it like me where I always received the latter?  Remember the Mr Fixit of the school…..THE JANNIE….who was always on hand with that magic bucket/shovel and of course the SAND!!  Were you a prefect (I wasn’t but remember they got extra portions at dinner).  In Paisley it was school dinners but strangely 7 miles down the road in Glasgow it was Dinner school.  Remember the Pink custard.  Did you have a crush at school….a fellow pupil or maybe a teacher?   What was your favourite subject and did this shape your career……I wanted to be a TV cameraman but unfortunately I didn’t get the exams required to join the BBC.  Finally were you lucky enough to be chosen to attend a school camp.  I had the privilege for attending Aberfoyle and Middleton where the headmaster was Paisley based Mr Jimmy Moffat whose famous son Stephen was the producer/writer for Dr Who and Sherlock.    Hope you enjoy looking back on years gone by and now on to this weeks Quiz.      Best wishes  Lawrence
