I was sorting out some old paperwork over the weekend, yes still tidying up - we didn't have time to go through everything last week when we pulled it out of the shed.
Anyway, I came across my exam certificates and my old school reports which made great reading on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
Some of the funny comments were :
XX will never progress in needlework unless she first learns to sew
Handwriting is untidy, and needs to pay attention to what is taught in class
XX has the ability to do the work but does not always show willing interest
XX is a slow but enthusiastic pupil
Others were even less favourable comments.. including the ones which after half a term missed through illness said I should have tried harder duh!!
Still it was an amusing look back at my school days (best forgotten) and some thing were as accurate then as today proving I didn't get any better (or worse).
