A group of old pupils form Kalk Bay Primary school attended a reunion at the school on Saturday 17 September 2011. Most of those attending were at the school in the 1970’s and some folk hadn’t seen each other for 40 years! Well done to Penny “Wiley” Owens who arranged the event. Thanks to the current teachers, in particular Peter Shardlow, who took time out to open the school for us and to show us around.
A lot has changed at the school since we attended and there was loads of reminiscing about what we did where and
“do you remember when”,
“that’s where the tuck shop used to be”,
“this was our Sub A classroom”,
“this is where we used to watch movies on a Friday after break”….
The teacher who taught Sub A and B during that era, Mrs Breetzke, made an appearance and managed to remember most of us by name – how awesome is that for a 81 year old!
The Brass Bell was then a perfect venue, on a perfect day, for more catchup over lunch.
