The 23rd August was the open day for Libby High School as it is celebrating it's 50 anniversary! That day was also the very 1st time walking up the drive to the school, and actually being in the building since I left oooh how many years ago???!!! LOL

There was a good turnout for the day. First stop was in the assembly hall and a welcome from LHS's current HT, Donald John MacDonald. It was weird being in the assembly hall on the 'wrong side' as our wee group used to always gather around at the rear, right hand side of the hall just as you come through the doors. One of the group was missing, Crispin - now known as Cris who is now living and working in London. Denise blew up a photo of Cris and cut it out, added a stem so that Cris could 'join' us in the photies! Quite a few changes carried out through the school since we last attended. And although I am the same height now as I was at Libby, everything seemed smaller compared to how we all remembered it LOL!! Mrs Stenhouse, the nurse who worked at Libby whilst we were there hadn't really changed but us as pupils into adults sure did. As much as Mrs Stenhouse didn't recognise us, she sure remembered some of our names! A few other faces we recognised including Mr Adams, the music teacher turned up on the day! It was great to meet up with some of the girls from my year and we all went for a spot of lunch, blether and out came out the photies. OMG - we were fashion victims of 80's!
