Five Things I Couldn’t Do At School

teak_easel_2[1]Having just been asked by the alumni officer at Future First to give a talk at my old school to current students, I started to think about how things have changed since I attended – literally in the last century.

I couldn’t type my homework topic into a search engine.

I couldn’t use an interactive whiteboard.

I couldn’t text my mum to let her know I had been ‘kept behind’ – okay I’d got detention.

I couldn’t check the menu in advance to avoid the luncheon meat fritters ad infinitum.

I couldn’t cite my Human Rights when I decided it was too cold to go outside for games lessons.

Now I have to think of something entertaining to present to the current crop.  Just hope they behave better than my cohort when we had a fossil thrust upon us.  Happy days.
