Everyone told you at the time that your school days were the best days of your life, but you didn’t believe them! Now you spend your time telling kids that their school days are the best days of their life! Being at school in the 80s was for most amazing, there were those of course who hated school! Whether you loved or hated it here are 10 images that will bring back some 80s school memories!
1. BBC Micro Computer
The BBC Micro! The first Computer our school ever got. We only had one that was on a trolly and wheeled from classroom to classroom! Remember typing in pages of code for it to draw a box!
2. Dot Matrix Printer Paper
The BBC Micro had a big noisy printer attached to it, that could only print on this paper, which had perforations to tear off the sides and the next sheet!
3. Overhead Projector
Long before magic white boards we had overhead projectors. The teachers would whip out their pre written acetate sheets on various subjects, saving them the arduous task of writing it on the board! Do they still have these in schools?
