Comments about this page

  • Have just discovered this site and had my memory jogged ( now being 82 years young!) thanks to Sylvia Watts….. who commented on the 2nd of May of last year.
    Sylvia…I really do remember SO well…Woolvens tuck shop….that was possibly the highlight of our school days…if we were lucky enough to have any pennies to spend!.
    Miss Neate is one of my favourite memories…..I loved her cookery classes. The only bad memory I had of the cookery class was when we had to “chop off” the head of a trout for a dish named “Trout Almondene”. There was no way that I could do this and eventually she did it for me…..saying that I would never be a good cook!!. Otherwise she instilled in me a love of cooking which I have to confess I have relinquished now, to heating up in the microwave, ready prepared frozen meals ,purchased from a supermarket!.
    We all loved Miss Trist and I was so sad when she married and moved to Australia. It was then that Miss Mitchell (the geography teacher) temporarily took over the P.T. lessons (until a qualified P.T. teacher could be found) and I went from an “A” student in P.T. to a “D-minus”. The reason being that Miss Mitchell had failed me, in geography that same year, because I was unable to point out Paris on the displayed board map!!. Teachers today are so important ….they leave lasting impressions for the rest of young peoples lives!!.
    Sylvia….I’m not even sure that we were together in the class of 4A senior girls school……but I certainly do remember “The Tuck Shop” and I thank you for the wonderful memory.
    A few of the names that I do remember in the class of 4A Senior Girls school are….Rita Pollard (my best friend in that class), Celia Curry, Jean Skinner, Jean Young, Pat Kilby,Joan DeFuszard and the talented twins (whose names I cannot remember) acknowledged for their amazing acrobatics and artistic renderings of horses and other subjects.

    Hopefully you are doing well and coping with the Corona Virus….life has changed….once again!.
    Would love to hear from anyone who has memories of “The Good Old Days”!.
