I have always really believed in the supernatural, but until a few months ago it had always seemed so far away and not personal to me. Nothing serious had ever happened before.
I am almost 16 and I was on work experience (for those who do not know it is taking a trial of a certain job to get an idea of how it feels to have a real occupation). I decided to go to my old primary school (in America I believe it is called an elementary school?).
Two days into my week of work and I spent the day in the youngest class. In the morning I had no bad feelings or any kind of premonitions (not that I have experience any of that kind of thing before) and the class seemed normal. The classroom I was in is situated in the oldest part of the school before everything was built onto it, which I did not find out until after what happened.
When it came to lunch time I got out my lunch and sat down within the confines of the class, all the children had gone out to play and the other teachers had gone to the staff room. As it was only my second day I did not want to go in there as I felt too young and silly doing so. I sat at the children's tables and started eating. I felt a tug on my hair and turned around wondering if a child had gotten in without my noticing, but still the room was unoccupied apart from me. I returned to my lunch blaming it on my hair getting caught in the chair or on a piece of clothing. I was too scared to admit to myself that it could have been anything more.
About 10 to 15 minutes later I felt a very decisive tap on my shoulder, not the kind that could have been a coincidence. After that I got up slowly and left for the staff room. Good news is I got over my worries of eating in the staff room, bad news is that it scared the hell out of me.
After my mother consulted the office worker (her office is directly adjacent to the classroom), she said that often when working after school hours she had heard loud noises and bangs but had always blamed it on the pipes or the school "settling" as people often do.
I haven't been back since and wanted to find out more but wasn't sure where to search. There was a news report in 1885 from the Grantham Journal regarding an accident around the surrounding area of a young child but I do not have access to it which is a shame.
