School houses. Herbert (yellow), Hooker (green), Keble (blue) and I think the last one was Farrah or Ferrer, but I've never been inclined to check exactly what it was (red).
I remember those house assemblies well. The art teacher, whose name I've long forgotten, would get his guitar out and we'd have a sing song. Then someone would get the house points cup -- awarded to the clever/well behaved kids.
I do wonder now if all schools had houses, house points and order marks (three of those buggers and it was a lunchtime detention).
i am genuinely amused houses forgot about them
I was in shackelton ,, we had oats .. Hillary and cannot think of the last one and my claim to fame was the last game of the season when first year shackelton played Hillary for who's house won the shield for the year ... Terrance Macmillan stadium and seemed like fucking thousands there and in the dying seconds yours truly hit a worldie unstoppable volley in the postage stamp ...que pitch invasion i am genuinely amused all the older kids knew my name then and all spoke to me from that day
I was the hero i am genuinely amused I went up to collect the shield the next day at assembly
