GRANDPARENTS visited a school to share memories of their younger years.

Laughter of children from Portsmouth High echoed through the school 
while grandparents told tales of their childhood.

Glendda Graves, grandmother of Chloe, 10, explained her schooling life to the children.

She said: ‘They asked some mature questions. They were interested in discipline and amazed at how we could be smacked with a ruler or a cane. They were astonished at the simplicity of our lives and the lack of technology.’

Lindsay Cunningham, deputy head of the junior school, said both children and grandparents could gain from this experience. She said: ‘We can learn so much from this generation and the grandparents can have a real insight into what the girls learn in school.’
