GRAHAM Norton was the centre of attention today back at his old school, Bandon Grammar, when he launched a book detailing the history of the institution.
The book, Bandon Grammar School, has been written by school principal, Ian Coombes.
In his address to students, Norton had some nuggets of wisdom, saying:
"As a teenager, life is so serious. Everything matters so much.
"If there is any perk to getting older - and there aren't many - one of them is that those serious things still happen to you when you're older, you can still be humiliated, have your heart broken, be embarrassed, but when you're older, at least you know you are going to get over it.
"People are going to forget. And if I could go back and talk to the boy I was, running around in a uniform that was always either too small or too big, never quite right, I would tell him to worry less. Don't worry about things so much."
