I wen't to St Vedast school for Boys. They used to get us pupils to clean the school building at the end of the day- those who chose to that is. The choice was cleaning or meditation. The clever ones did the meditation (sit on your bum for half an hour) and the quietly rebelious ones (me!) cleaned t...

Hello all, I am generally a chilled out dad, but sometimes blow-up at one or all of my kids. When this happens I am immediatly reminded of Mr Bedford, blowing up at me and my class mates. Many of the teachers at St.Vedast liked to shout but Bedford had a red face and a beard so he was more memorable...

This site is even more important than could have been anticipated at conception and birth. Nice one Mike!! I often wonder how many silent obsevers, ex-pupils and others, there are reading these posts. It has been theraputic for me and many others, surely including those who read but do not contribut...

Hello dottydolittle, Baked potatoes? soup? macarroni cheese? rice? You were spoilt!! Goblinboy, We could have a new thread about the SES diet but it might make us all ill if it's content extended beyond a page or two. ADG, Instead of calling it "yogurt and other delicacies" how about, "Is the yogurt...

Hello girls, AAAHH! The SES lunchtime diet! Fruit; fair enough, good staple, usually ripe. Yogurt; never could bring myself to try it. Was there anything under the skin or was it just skin? Bread; brown and heavily wholemeal and blessed by the Atman. Honey; only allowed off the spoon at first then, ...

I wen't to St.V with two of my brothers and to date one of them said he didn't think the school was too bad and the other, nothing. We just don't talk about it. When I left St.V I just wanted to live a normal life. We were all fully aware at school how wierd it was and how life outside school was no...

Hello Grimep, I used to talk about St.Vedast up to about the age of 23. I used to get so many funny looks that I stopped through embarrassment, feeling friends thought I was either a wierdo or permenantly damaged. I just wanted to 'fit in', not easy when youre painfully shy, had what little confiden...

Hello JoJo, I remember Mr Skinner. Strange man. We had to do the 'aaaaa' thing as well, again and again and again........ I think one of the 'a's in the 'aaaaa' must have been wrong! Perhaps- 'aAaaa' or 'AAAaa'?? Pretty pointless really. Does anyone remember Mr Bedford? 'Together NO!!!' 'lets try ag...

I can empathise with you all to an extent (sorry, i'm being vague as to who). I have just read the whole page above and yes, I know what you mean about the sleepless nights after my St Vedast experience. Lucky (!?!) for me though I am only hung up about what happened to me on the domestic front when...

Agree with you there grimep. 'be aware of the fundamentals of logical fallacies...' I am not intellectual enough to know what you are talking about. Does this mean I should stop reading or contributing to these threads. Or does six years at St Vedast mean I can continue?!?! Keep talking everyone and...

T.s

Hello T.S, Just wanted to say that in six years of schooling at St Vedast boy's, I was caned, slippered, rulered, kicked, slapped around the face and even had my hair pulled out by a teacher. I was reduced to sobbing tears in front of my class once and depressed often but I am not convinced that any...
