Photos from Longacre School in the UK – my old primary school
As I drove up the tree-lined driveway to the sound of a teacher encouraging some children to run faster around the pitch, happy memories of my years at Longacre School in Shamley Green came flooding back. I was there to talk about my adventures in Antarctica and was treated to lunch in the library with the headmistress, the deputy head and another teacher. They were charming. The whole experience was as warm and comforting as the chocolate pudding and chocolate sauce I am delighted to learn is still on the school’s lunch menu. Yum! Sad the hear the spam fritters are off the menu but not surprised given their fat content, but they used to be my favourite! I have attached a photo of me with the great children who heard my talk and who participated with such enthusiasm. Thank you to everyone from Longacre for welcoming me back. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
