On Friday the 8th of November, I was able to attend Carlisle Primary School’s centenary.
This was the primary school that I attended from year one to year seven.
I walked into the school filled with anticipation, I was excited to go back and see my primary school. I was excited to see how it had changed.
I loved my primary school years and have some amazing memories of being there.
One memory which I remember well is my year seven teacher Mr Sellors and how he encouraged me with my creative writing.
I still have my creative writing books with the comments that he encouraged me with. This is something that I will forever be grateful for.
I loved going down memory lane and looking at all the classrooms where I had received my education.
I still found the basketball court where we used to play and have assembly still quite large. I remember that this is where we used to have our assemblies and remember that we didn’t wear hats and I have memories of friends fainting from the heat.
I did find that the classrooms did look and feel a bit smaller.
I loved that time of my life, the friendships I made, the teachers that impacted my life.
I even bumped into someone that I had been to school with. It started out a bit awkward though, he said I think that I went to school with you?
He was trying to think of the year, I had that look on my face like you need to be kind. Well, he was.
There is something about learning about the history of the people that were there before you and what they experienced.
As I walked around the school, there was a place where they wanted to know If you wanted to share any stories about being at Carlisle Primary.
I shared my story about Mr Sellors, this was really important to me and the journey that I am on now.
There is also something about hearing people’s stories.
What is a time in your life that you remember fondly?
Was there a teacher that made a positive impact on you?
I would love to hear about your memory?
