Not wishing to get sentimental but Warden Park School stands out for me, not just because of past time spent at a school similar to this just down the road, but this was the venue of my first presentation. It seemed that there was quite a range of colourful wall finishes and carpets. My recollection of my school days seemed to be filled with dark coloured walls, corridors and vinyl floors.
I don’t know if it is my age, but all the teachers at the school seemed to be quite young and world wise. Whereas I remember them being quite old,suited and booted, and armed with bits of chalk or rulers.
It was explained to us that a large amount of the classes were away atthe moment doing a sight seeing and fact finding field trip in London. So hence the first day being Tuesday the 21st was relatively quiet. On this day, at the Enable Me meeting was Nik, Chris, Seb, Belinda, Neil, Sarah-Jane, Ilona and myself. Although it was a rather quiet and apprehensive day, there was still a large amount of questions from the various classes of the secondary school children.
Luckily for us, on the Friday it was the school children from the trip in London, who were slightly tired from their time away. On this day Neil was replaced by Benita who seemed to mesmerise the class, when she told of the issues she faced in every day life. Again I enjoyed my time with the presentation and was lucky enough to talk about some of the things that I have seen around the world. And I talked to some of the pupils, who had obviously been touched in their life by the topic I talked about.
On the Tuesday and Friday ,the school lunches, which I never thought i'd say is that they were pretty good.
