Schools Out For Summer

Ring that bell!!!!!!!! Most Australian school kids will be on Summer holidays by today and enjoying the long hot Christmas and January break; parents maybe not so much.This classic old school bell is at the fantastic Alumy Creek School Museum on Grafton's outskirts.

So many memories of the school bell, the favoured goody goody kids who always got that special job to ring it,  the naughty kids who dreamt about ringing it until they broke the rope, those kids who liked lessons and the sound signaled a joyous escape from the rough-house of the playground. Which kid were you? What is your school bell story?

This is a Skywatch Friday post. Click here for more heavenly scenes.
