School Days

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge has the first challenge for October (!!! eep where did sept go?). And we are going back to remember our school days.

Scrap about a high school reunion, 
or a memory of your time in high school. 

I don't have a lot of photos from this time, not like the kids today (now I just sound like an old person - sigh). Any way, here is my year 10 class photo. I would have been 16, same as Meaghan is now. She is handling this time with far more grace and style than I did...

I remember this photo because I was having a particularly bad hair day. My cowlicks were out of control and I had a huge flick sticking out the side.

sigh.






And aren't our uniforms a treat? Blue and white stripes for the girls and a lovely dark grey/light grey combo for the boys. In the senior years we got upgraded to solid blue - and we still wore them with very, very high hem lines. 

That was my best friend standing next to me. Also known as Karen. In our history class we had 4 Karen's, 2 Kate's, 2 Sharon's, 2 Simon's, 2 Roberts. Easy to pass off question's, at least 1 of the Karen's tended to know something...

So come and play with us, love to hear of your memories from this important time.
