Happy Birthday GHS
Like most little girls I dreamt of donning the blue skirt,white shirt and the all important tie that set us apart from the Intermediate High.I think I knew the school song before I even walked through the school gates which highlights how badly I wanted to go there.
I still remember the joy I felt on beholding the Common Entrance slip which told me I was successful in my quest.It still ranks as the happiest day of my life.Truth is if I could bottle that day and walk around with it I'd be floating on air.
Today,I think of my alma mater as a grand old lady surrounded by thousands of her adoring offspring.Am sure she,like most parents would have watched us grow and wept for the many of us who strayed from her teachings.However,like most good parents she would have forgiven and welcomed us back to the fold.On the other hand am positive her children have brought her way more joy than pain.
Happy Birthday and continue doing what you do best.
Oh, and my post for the 8th was at 11:19pm - just 1 minute after yours. Are we both late-night insomniac bloggers?
I have similar feelings for my alma mater...The Blue and White (St. George's College) of North Street. We gone past 150 years already.
That is a beautiful sentiment, baby girl.
(I always wanted to go to a school that had uniforms! It just looks so pulled together. Yeah - I got issues!!! hahaha)
jus kidding. haha.
Is that you in the picture btw?
