The feeling was surreal

HOW wonderful to be able to be a part of the excitement of good GCSE results coming in.

I still remember the day when I received my GCE O level results in August 1969.

In those days they arrived by post and, ripping open the envelope as fast as I could, I found that I had passed all seven subjects.

That feeling was surreal and I can still feel it today.

Well done to all those that put in the effort to get such good results.

As my teacher way back then said: “Dedication never goes unrewarded.”
