School was pretty dull back then

I found these pictures online today. My old school. I had found this site before but did not see the actual school and classrooms on it. I found school awfully dull and think the children today have  much better schooling and facilities.

This was St. Augustine's Aglican School

I think it was the 5th form.

An older post about this time in my life and schooldays

Maybe better facilities but I don't know about the actual education! My friend, who is a teacher, was telling me about some of the whacky curriculum they have for the children now a days ... the friend that was just here.

I agree with what Cicero says. I don't see that children today are being taught lasting helpful things for their adult lives. How fun for you to see these great pictures of your old school though.

I would have loved to go to a school like that, instead, my high school resembled a prison-at least for 9th and 10th grade.

That looks like a huge estate. My daughter said the school she went to for 7th grade seemed like a prison. There were very few windows in the school.
I found out it was actually built by the same company that builds prisons so I guess she had a point.
I think the facilities have improved over the years, but I think we're so off base with the 3 R's.
Actually as I plunged my daughters sink today I was thinking that every child should be required to take a plumbing class before the graduate. You know something you can use in life....

I think kids learned more back then than they do these days. What about you?
