I was at Belfast tech 1957-59. I remember Pansy Astell well, if he was in a good mood his lessons were great, when in a bad mood he was a demon. Mr Fox taught Geography and a teach known as Hawkeye wood work. In his lesson I learnt that given a saw and wood I could make sawdust but not much else.  Every time I hear the hymn "Praise my soul the king of Heaven" I'm back in that big hall on morning assembly with Sanko Brown leading . There was department where day release young girls were taught commerce, there was one a dead ringer for Bridget Bardot which sent many a pubescent heart a flutter.
