Here Belinda remembers starting school.
TranscriptMy mother died when I was very young, four years old and it was quite a traumatic event and very shortly afterwards I had to move away from my home and live with another family. And very shortly after that, as it seemed to me, I started school. I was four and the school was what was called a nursery school, I don’t remember much about what I did there but I do remember some events, I was supposed to go home for my lunch but not knowing where my home was to go home, and eventually my – a woman I call my mother but then I didn’t call her my mother later, she used to come and find me. But then I didn’t know how to get out of the class, I seemed not to know how to operate and it caused quite a bit of consternation.
