Primary School

My very first school experience was at ‘De Dames‘, a well known and admired Catholic school in the heart of Antwerp. My mom worked in the same street so going there was just the logical next step. We wore uniforms back then.

I met my best friend here, on my first day. Her mom was the gym teacher (and principal later on). We still see each other often. This is a picture of us in pre-school (also at De Dames). (We didn’t have to wear any uniforms in pre-school.) She’s the one on the right in the middle, we looked so much alike that even teachers were confused at times.

Can you guess who I am?  I’ll just tell you, I’m the one on the bottom in the middle, sucking my thumb. Yes, I know, I look like a boy.
