That was all i remember too. Shame it didn't print on my sheet lolDarius the Mede was a King and a wonder
With an eye of steel and a voice like thunder..........................
I can't remember the rest offhand but I've never forgotten those opening lines!
There was another one we performed on stage for parents as well, something about a Tiger, the only words I can recall are....."Hacking throughe jungle like a knife"
All in an effort for us to speak correctly and lose our Brummie accent
That's lovely to see, I was a member of the school choir but after my voice broke in senior school I couldn't, and still can't, sing a note.
Are you getting it mixed up with Silvermere Rd school? I don't think Mapledene was ever used for that purpose. I know for a period around that time Silvermere had something to do with teacher training as I bumped into a couple of friends from Grammar school who were studying there for teaching quaalifications.During 1969 to 1970 I was going out with a girl who was a student teacher from Westbourne Road teachers training college Edgbaston. During this period of time she was Mappledene School which was being used as an annex to the college . There were no school children there then as I visited the school many times to pick her up in my car. How many years was it used by the teachers training college.
Silvermere was definitely a secondary school in 1965. A friend of mine went there and left in about 1970. So it must have have been a teacher training college after that date? When used as a college it was no longer a school. Sorry no specific dates. You may find this link interesting. I didnt know the author but knew his two younger brothers as I lived in the same road. My mom and uncle also went to this school too. Remember my mom taking me to an open day there and showing me where an unexploded bomb lodged on the staircase in WW2.I guess it could nave been Silvermere school jmadone, there both in the same area. Can anybody help out here
