By Biya Haq | 19 Feb, 2018

For those of you who went to the Defence branch of Lahore Grammer School in Lahore, you all know that that little red brick building was much more than just a school, it was a home.

Whether you were there for two years or fifteen, there are certain things all Grammarians will never forget about school so, in the spirit of nostalgia, we thought we’d lay em out for you all to read.

1. Canteen keh really greasy really messy REALLY delicious fries.

They would come in a brown paper cone filled with grease and would literally be the best thing you could ever eat.

2. The red and yellow discipline slips we’d all get for NO REASON.
