dghr272 School trips were a no no for me….. not that I hadn’t a chance of a few, but my Aunt and Uncles farm was my preferred trip. None of that foreign stuff for me ….
I should have been a Brexiter 😄 😄

JanHank My parents definitely couldn't have afforded to let me go on school trips abroad had there been any.
I did go on a school bus trip to the London museums and my best friend at the time was as sick as a dog on the bus, that was when she discovered she suffered from travel sickness.

Pudsey_Bear Parents didn't believe in me going on schools trips (bastards both), but I did go to see a tale of two cities once and also a trip to York, whoopee.

raynipper Yeah, there was always more girls than boys on our trips. Maybe the parents just wanted to get rid of em.

barryd Loved school trips. They were the best. We had them most years. Usually a skiing trip or somewhere historical like Venice. The best one was a long weekend to London organised by our Art Teacher (dont go there) to The Great Japan Exhibition. Three fifth year chaps including me and about 40 forth year girls in a hotel in Soho. What could possibly go wrong? I dont remember even going to the exhibition.

raynipper Yes our school arranged foreign trips about then. 1955 and 56 a group of us were 'escorted' to Belgium and then Germany. I loved them but it must have cost my widowed mother dear.

Or maybe it was right, that lot in the north were all rufty tufty blokes not to be associated with (only JOKING)
A lot of change has happened in my lifetime and no doubt in yours. When I was a little girl for instance, holidays abroad were not common, I was a lucky girl because when I was 14 my brother paid for me to go to Austria with 23 others, arranged by our Methodist church minister. I think I´d better shut up as I´m starting to reminisce I was sometimes and angel and sometimes a little devil

My best friend was afraid to tell her Mum when her periods started at 11 years old, my Mum had to tell her Mum.

By no means do I think we should go back to those days, but a little restraint on certain matters would not be a bad thing in my opinion .
