No, not the motorbike but the gold and silver stars that you would get in your school notebooks if your work was particularly good. At my Junior school we had stars and at Senior school it was boring A, B+, B,B- etc.
I had assumed that most schools had a similar system until Ian bought some old school books home the other evening. In his history books, the marking system was marks out of 20 and if you were lucky you got this.
If you were very lucky you got this.
This is the first time and only time that I have ever seen Co-op savings stamps being used as part of a marking system.
For my non UK readers, you would get these stamps with your purchases from the Co-op store, you could also get Green Shield stamps with your petrol. Stamps would be redeemed for goods.
Ok, that's just given away my age, who else remembers them?
