On Wednesday Aly's mum Rachael came to tell us about what St. Luke's was like when she came to school. Rachael came to St. Luke's in 1986 and she was here for Grades 4, 5, and 6.
Rachael told us some very interesting things about what St. Luke's was like years ago.
The Principal was Ms D'Prazer.
There were no computers and each room had a chalkboard.
Rachael can remember cleaning the blackboard dusters outside with a ruler.
The Adventure playground had wooden equipment with a concrete tunnel.
The oval was a big patch of grass with holes.
Their hats were not blue, they were red.
They didn't wear windcheaters with the school logo printed on it, they wore woollen jumpers with a school badge.
There was no hill.
The toilets used to be where the Discovery Centre is now.
Rachael won 'student of the week' and we have 'star of the week'.
The tuck shop was opened everyday!
The tuck shop used to be where the new office is.
Rachael didn't learn about the Letterland characters.
The students used to sit in wooden desks instead of tables.
The school uniform was the same as it is today.
Mrs Davey (our Librarian) used to drive Rachael home from school.
Thank you Rachael for sharing! We loved hearing about St. Luke's and how it used to be.
School has certainly changed!
What do you remember about your school days?
