School Diary pages - around 1977 ?

School Diary pages with all the weekly events, for those wanting to reminisce over things like the Frisbee club.

I have looked through my collection of School Calendars (apologies for pedantry, but they were not called 'diaries' in the 1970s. The pages appear to be from a calendar after 1978. Before that year there was no mention of "Lesson 9 (supervised homework)". There was no mention of "Harriers Squad". The days of the week are displayed using upper case letters and underlining. Until 1978 (and possibly beyond) the days of the week were typed in lower case without underlining. The Spring 1975 calendar is interesting; it was typed on a different machine from the usual typewriter. I wonder how many others at the time noticed how strange it looked.
