Armit School 1963-64
In my one room school the janitor came in the early evening to clean the school and to bring water for the school and my teacher age.. In September the library and paper storage cupboards soon showed evidence of a mouse problem. The janitor and I would set out bait and gather up blackboard brushes on the front desks and wait quietly. Our targets soon came out for a snack and we had a friendly competition to see who could hit the most mice with the brushes. Mouse traps were later set in the cupboards and early next morning it was my job to check our trap line before the students arrived for classes.
