When rooting through the archives to find new and interesting memories, sometimes it isn’t the pictures that grab my attention. This week it’s the lyrics of a song written by Frank Wiens and Keith Bennett, back when the staff from the school hosting the inter-school race had to entertain the students from both schools. Often the staff would put on a skit that involved singing. While this song has names specific to the era, you could easily substitute students and staff from your time in the school. I think it was sung to the tune of Tom Connors – My Stompin’ Ground???
Who remembers this hearing this song? What are your memories of songs made up by the staff/students and performed at the schools? Send us your story.
