I don't remember being put on detention, or even getting a House Debit Point - but then again I might have blanked that part out from my school memory! But I could understand if Miss Chivvers had given me one for gate-crashing her lessons, me and my 2 or 3 close associates would attend her lesson during our free periods in the 5th year when we were supposed to be swotting for our CSEs, she was always too polite to ask us to leave - I'm gripped by a sense of guilt nowsorry, Miss Chivvers!

P.S. Don't know what subjects she taught, can anyone remember?

Fame at last - I suppose I must have been in the 3rd year (aged 14, 1963) when I was giving my mother a tour of the school one Parents' Day, we were in the Art Room looking at an exhibit when a guy turned up with a very professional looking camera, he explained  he was from the Evening Mail and was doing a piece on the school. He asked if we would pose by the art work and then he took his photo, we purchased a print of the actual shot but didn't keep the article from the mail - what a pity!

Given that the Historic Inflation Calculator that I use says that 12d (a shilling) in 1964 is worth 2.39 today in 2018 and that School meals in Solihull cost 2.05  a day. I would say school meals as always are good value and cheaper than they were in 1964.

Book stand - The most useful item I made in my HLS Woodwork classes (4th year, I think) was a book stand, I was flattered when Mr Watson offered to buy it but I'd lavished so much love and care on it I wanted to keep it, I'm disappointed I don't still have it - can't remember the circumstances but somewhere it's got lost along the way.
