Schooling memories on a rainy day

Saturday, March 19, 2005

Got an email on memories of common childhood for babies from the 70's and 80's. There will be many items that we would recognised and admitt that it's a common shared entity. One of the memory of which I find particularly attached and will never forget about it, which is:-

Item 34: You went to school in slippers and a raincoat when it rained, and you find a dry spot in the school to sit down, dry your feet, and wear your dry and warm socks and shoes.

Yup, in order to reach my primary school with the shortest route, there would be this big grass field (size of one soccer field long) that I have to cut across to reach. There isn't any cemented road path, the only path was the old dirt track that many have taken and flatten the grass wouldn't be able to grow. As such on rainy days, this path would be muddy and wet. Could even see earthworms crawling out of the field at the basketball court wriggling to catch some breath. The above memory truely fits as on days where it rained, I would put on slippers to reach school and once reach school, I would then wear on the shoe.

Alternatively I can also cut across the vocational institute (currently known as ITE) beside my primary school to avoid dirtying my shoe. But sometimes they would not open the back gate to our school, and so we have to go by the side gate which also have to cross through another dirt path. I also remember the "bridge" which is juz a wooden plank that is placed across the wide drain at the VI, and that at one time, there can only be one person moving across.

Also not to forget the HDB flat beside my school is a gentle slope, and there is a sloping drain. After the rain, there will be the rain water flushing down, making like the waterfall effect from the flights of stair on the drain. Not only during raining days I can see that, on days where the cleaner wash the HDB corridor, the amount of water used can also create the waterfall effect. It would be enjoyable to stand on the stair and enjoy the water rushing down your legs.

Schooling on a rainy day seems advantegous, with what an unforgetable memory.
