Bourne County Primary School

A Memory of Bourne

I also attended the primary school at Bourne from 1955 to 1963 before moving to Heckington in 1964. I remember mostly with fondness, my time at the school, especially my time in Mr. Lamberts class 3 as it was when I attended. I ssed to love his story reading as he would stand at a lectern which was to the left of his desk. When he read from Dickens's 'A Christmas Carol' he would come charging down the aisles between the desks shouting 'Bah Humbug' at the approriate points in the story - brilliant.
There were four houses in our school which we all wore the colour - Robin (red) Linnet (green) Canary (yellow) and Kingfisher (blue). I was in Robin and we were given housepoints for good work etc. Every Friday assembly the totals were read out for the previous week and the matching shields with the birds painting on them would be moved into the right place.
Don't get me started on country dancing which we had on a Friday morning and the rush for certain girls, won't mention any names.

Your memories made me smile as they reminded me of my time there between Sept 62 and July 70. Sadly Mr Lambert has recently passed away but he was a great teacher. I especially enjoyed our trip to Montreuil-sur-mer.

Thanks Helen for posting that comment. What sad news. He was the greatest teacher in my eyes and he was the inspiration in my teaching career.
