Celebrating Palmyra Primary School's Centenary in 2013

Times were tough back then

1 Comment

I do have some memories but one that stands out is the day a group of year 7s were going to hang a kid that they obviously didn’t like.

 They had the rope over a tree and the rope around his neck before some teachers came bolting down and grabbed him and carted him off.

 That was just one memory and there are probably many more like me winning a singing completion and winning a crate of coke and having to cart the thing home.  I was so happy that I won I wouldn’t let anyone help me carry it in case they wanted a bottle.  ( Times were tough back then )
