Memories of being with my older two brothers together, precious since one is no longer with us and the other so far away.
Long term Friendship - from this school came one of my closest friends. 40 some years is a long friendship.
Family is very much connected to this school as well for it was the last time we were together as a complete family while I was attending James R. Henderson. The tearing away - the issues of a life breaking apart security - love - familiarity - friendships and even first deaths that I can remember.
Teachers - I remember the one in particular whom I had a crush on and then there was the one who failed me and then the mean one.
Playing in the school yard - king of the hill - chasing girls to kiss - fights - fun games - I loved recesses back then.Can not forget those walks to school rain or shine - no buss back then and ah riding your bike to and from school - pleasures of childhood.
After school activities were a big part of James R Henderson public school too. Their was Christian Service Brigade, and for a while Church met in the auditorium on Sunday mornings as it was building a new building else where.
But as in life - life keeps rolling on and new adventures await.
