|Annexed huts in 1984, shortly before removal. The hut in question|
was next in line to the left, but was gone by the time I took the photo
Algebra was never my strong point. I wasn't helped by the fact that I seemed immutably incapable of applying myself to subjects in which I had no interest and, to me, algebra was far too abstract a concept, the academic absorption of which contained no obvious benefits that I could discern. Therefore, mastering the intricacies of a slide-rule lay beyond the meagre limits of my interest or abilities. I say "subjects in which I had no interest", but that's simply because they failed to interest me - the fault was therefore surely theirs (or the teachers who failed to imbue them with that particular quality), not mine.
|The space where the huts had been was left bare for many years,|
before, eventually, a different design of annexed 'huts' took their
place, but running 'longways' instead of 'sideways'
|I only noticed the existence of these constructions|
in the last few years of the school's life. The photos
were taken around 2007, not long before complete
demolition of everything within school grounds
