  1. I recall Mr Deedman. One memory in particular: there was a “Hobbies Exhibition” as a competition between houses. Some Year 11, who was impossibly sophisticated for me, a mere Y8 or Y9, had set up his own Bulletin Board System (BBS), a precursor to the internet. I spent the whole evening entranced and watching this him dial into it from the school’s IT suite (on top of the gym) under Mr Deedman’s wistful gaze. I was sure that I was witnessing the future. Unfortunately, I was so busy watching him that I had left my stand unattended, which was a bit of an issue as it was showing all my shotguns and cartridges. Thankfully my dad was manning the stand, but he did give me stern words when I eventually returned.
