It is really hard to express my feelings right now. This was the view of what used to be my school last week. Its buildings are now vacated – and coming down. By May there will be only playing fields here.
At the same time as the pupils have now moved into their new school (one of the many so-called academies), Yorkshire Viking Norway has moved into its new home on the main CQD server in Norway. One main reason, sadly, is the need to have stricter security measures to protect my privacy.
Many of the older posts imported into this new blog will not display correctly. This is due to how the pictures are formatted. This will be corrected in due course.
I shall not go into the extra security measures I have taken, but suffice it to say that all access to this blog is logged. Some people may find that they need to be registered in order to view these pages – others will not. I shall constantly evaluate the systems in place, and shall take a new look at security in a few months after trying them out.
Both CQD and Yorkshire Viking Norway use the colour scheme of the former Adwick School uniform. My school was taken over by the successor school, Doncaster North Technology College back in 2002 – and consequently neither the uniform nor Adwick School have existed now for over ten years. That successor school has itself been taken over by one of the many so-called academies now sprouting up all over the United Kingdom.
For the record Yorkshire Viking Norway supports the Anti Academies Alliance, and believes in comprehensive education. However, since I no longer live in the United Kingdom, this will not become a major issue in my blog.
