We’re sure you remember your days at school… the times when you and your friends sat on the last bench and ate your tiffin during class. The times when your best friend ‘helped’ you with the answers to a test, and all you had to do in return was buy an ice cream. The first crushes and some of the most wonderful memories from the best time of your life. We took a trip down memory lane and asked residents and staff about their school days.
