Mrs Heron, one of our amazing kitchen team, recalls her time at DJS from 1979 - 1983. Play time in particular was very different:

‘There were bars with concrete underneath. If you fell that was it. You just got on with it. A popular playtime game was elastics. We also had a tuck shop outside the door to where the activity attic is. For 10p a day, I used to buy a packet of Monster Munch and two chewy sweets.

Each week, our class teacher would choose a child to go up to the staffroom (where the activity attic is now) to make a hot drink and then carry it back down the stairs to the classroom.

I also remember the caretaker, Mr Dean. He lived in the caretaker’s house that was where the car park is now.’
