PSC 89-91 any takers?

Hi there!
Found this site via the yahoo club.
I was a symonds from 89-91 dont seem to see many people from my day on the board but i shall write a little about me!
Used to drive Gordon a red 2CV , play in the Netball 1st team etc etc studied Business Studies, Communications and Social Biology, and as I did with GCSE's tried to use the minimal work idea! God knows how i passed but i did and after a year out went on to Surrey Uni to study Bsc in Nursing Studies. Unfortunatly it was a course that required work! so it came to an end in year two! I was told i did have a good bedside manner though!
Got on the radio while at university something I am doing now, trials for a new FM radio station are happening as we speak so I am involved!
I am in Sales now much better suited to my personality and sarcastic streak! Account Manager for Telecommunications compnay.
Had Andy Roles as form tutor for short while then Chris Cooper who had to cope with me! Many an exhausted look i seem to remember, perhaps I am am less infuriating now (still cant spell though!) and i certainly have more direction now! Is that you on the board?
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant with my first child due at the beginning of October. After getting married in 1995 and separating in 2000 , i hope perhaps the route i am now taking is the right one!!
Anyway enough rambling thats me, anyone want to email please do or i look forward to reading any messages!

good photo posted

Good photo of the 'new' building Bernard. I have a only a very faint memory of it.
 
I see that we have complaints about our reminiscing, well, I feel our individuality  to a great extent comprises our memories. Swapping shared exeriences is an important and enjoyable part of friendship, doncha think?

Name those rooms!

Can anyone name each of the classrooms that ran from the centre of the school towards the squash courts?
 
I think the first was Oswald Simpkins, then came Parker Smith, then Morys. The next two I can't remember. I think the last one on the block was Bowker. Then there were the two Art rooms - I think the first was Gater - can't remember the other, but it was the one that Renton used.
