Re: University Challenge.

I take it that that was when 'Blowna Gasket' was question master and before 'Paxo Stuffingman' took over ? I loved that one-off TV comedy drama based on Uni Challenge some time ago Can't remember it's title or cast members but I wish they'd show it again. There's a film called 'Starter for 10" (bas...

Re: All this is incredibly sad

Graham, I am not trying to be difficult, but how does anyone know that "over 60 percent of sexual assault cases are never reported?" If they are not reported how does anyone know that they have taken place? Also, 60 percent of how many - 100, 1,000, 10,000? This is a very emotive area - and rightly...

...By the way, does the School still have the daily (weekdays) 10 minute gym/PT sessions on the grass in front of each house, or something similar?
We didn't even have that in my time (67-75 - so not that long after you!) I doubt it's been reintroduced!

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

..... 1) Current statutory regulations make it a requirement of all teachers to snitch on each other if a child's safety is at stake, on pain of dismissal. Seems to me that this environment makes abuse unlikely - especially when combined with senior management using the eyes and ears of the pupils ...

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

I'm not emotional and I'm certainly not ashamed to continue to say that this thread is nonsense. It's not helpful to start criticizing the OP in such terms when he has (legally proven) reason to raise these points. He does err slightly in his argument that statute overrides contract. It's correct t...

Re: Data Protection Act

I have already mentioned that I couldn't be checked out to work with children because I have an adoption certificate and not (legally) a birth certificate which is what the local regulations require! That's odd. An adoption certificate is one of the documents listed as a "group 1 primary identity d...

I suspect that the modern equivalent would be a semi-uniform jacket and a hand-held computer.

A hi-viz jacket can be very useful apparently :)

Not that I’ve ever been invited to join either of them, or the masons or the Morris Men or even MI5.

Where did it all go wrong?
Me neither. I put it down to having a long-held dislike of having to wear funny clothes. (Wonder where I got that from?)

Re: On a happier note: The Good Teachers!

There is already a posting called Favourite Teachers on this Forum and so maybe this new thread is doubling up what has been said unless and being pedantic there is a difference between a good teacher and favourite one :P The reason I posted this thread here is because over a long period of time a ...

Re: The arrival of the girls

I will check those out, thank you. Although I understand it’s quite different now, it always amazed me that there was nothing really keeping us in, or others out at Horsham. Presumably the site is still relatively easy to get into/out of? The Ring Fence was never really a barrier just a marker wasn...

I've just reinstalled and enabled the Tapatalk plugin.
Can you give it a go, and let me know if it's findable, and working OK?

Site name is "Unofficial Christ's Hospital Forum"
Yes, findable, and on a quick test, appears to work well

Thanks

Having looked at the stats, I didn’t re-add TapaTalk after the last major upgrade.
Very happy to re-install and configure it though if there are people wanting to use it?
Well, don't do it just for me ☺
