Many Scottish children went back to school today - end of the summer holidays!
So I thought I'd do a school related post.
First of all - this is my school report card from the 1960s - its funny to see Mum and Dad's signatures in it - brought a wee lump to my throat!
I seem to have been a reasonably consistent pupil! Such early promise - pity it didn't last!
Not as politically correct as today!
These illustrations come from a school reading book from Australia - "Seaside Story" issued by the Department of Education of New South Wales. You may remember another one of these books from this post.
I always feel that once the schools go back, then summer is over and today's weather is confirming that! There is definitely a bit of a chill in the air. I hope we have a few more sunny days to come though!
