Ken drove us to the ferry at Langdale. We had enjoyed our time with Ken and Joanne immensely. 29 years! … nah … just like yesterday. A beautiful morning crossing and then it was a bus into Vancouver. We made our way to the waterfront and “Steamworks”, the venue for meeting a few of my ex Champlain Heights students from ’86.
Deepest thanks to Justin, Shona, Nabila, Annie, Allison, Hoai, Yvonne and Leanne for taking the time out of their day to come and say hello. We shared stories about our lives and naturally, what they remembered about our short while together in ’86. The team games of ‘leaderball’, ‘tunnelball’, ‘passball’, Aussie Rules, plus this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLWzPQmd5sc which they all sang spontaneously,how I rippedstudents pages out if it wasn’t up-to-scratch (and that no-one had their work removed twice), had them believe in themselves, took them on their first ever camp, scared them shitless, was firm but fair plus other head swelling and not so head swelling memories. Jane seemed to get all the positive attention and I am stoked that she was there to share this catch-up with me. It was laughs all round and a good time was had
by all. I now have more special memories.
