    Yes, that was her, sure I remember her there in the 1960s as well, a nice woman.

    that will be Spongy, a good teacher was not my experience of the man.
    A nice person no doubt, but has no control over the class whatsoever, a tough gig to teach Re to a class of Atheists though

    In this BBC Rewind video clip from April 1958 at 2 min 37 seconds, there is an interview with Mr Grant, then headmaster of Miller Academy, he went on on to become rector of Thurso High School when it opened in October 1958. He is wearing an academic gown. I remember Dr Young rector of Thurso High School when I was there, wearing an academic gown. Although I have worked in a number of high schools I haven't seen any teacher wearing an academic gown the practice of wearing an academic gown seems to have died out.

    I'm in England right now, but I am studying to be a teacher. I have worked as a TA for years, mainly in SEN schools. Once I finish my BA(hon), I will then do a year of apprenticeship for my QTC. You can also do a year of teacher training at university instead of the in-school teacher training, but I would prefer to get paid. My children like to eat. There are so many rules and regulations these days that teachers are tied in red tape.
