As I teach or invigilate a class, I read the writings on the walls. You know that moment when you want to write a roll call of your squad, or just leave your nicknames on the walls. That shows, you are in a secondary school.
We were all there some. It took me back to my high school, where people wrote on the walls. I vividly remember Esther Smith was here som, which was on the ceiling of the form 2 block in the high school I attended. My internship brings memories, high school memories.
Some of the writings on the walls are about the end times, some are wise sayings, and others are things you do not understand. They sound Greek to me, probably, a language they understand. Other writings too are cringe worthy. You wouldn’t know what made them to write that. Anyway, that is SHS life for you. A time to remember, and look back at your naïve selves.
I don’t remember leaving my mark in high school, but I remember when I was in form two, everyone wrote her name/nickname on the blackboard before, covering it with a brand new white Formica Board. So at least, I left a mark in high school. At least, one.
Let’s chat: Did you write on your high school walls? Did you leave a mark? Do you remember what you wrote?
