I was at St Mary's from 1960-1966, the reception teacher was Mrs Davison or was it Davidson if I remember correctly she used to bring her daughter in occasionally. I think it was then Mrs Smith then we had a new male teacher Mr Klottrupp and then Mrs Reynolds, Mr Jarman was the Head Master and I remember being sent to his office to read to him, loved going down there because of the smell of pipe tobacco. Then there was the caretaker Mr Haigh who won the Star Walk and does anyone remember Mr Booth the crossing lollipop man who got run over one morning while doing his job. They were happy days before going to Myers Grove in Sept 1966.

I went to St Mary’s in 1970 – 74, more or less.

Every year they had a nativity play at the Church, I always wanted to play Joseph, but ended up a Sheppard, every year. Still it was honest work for a budding actor of 5

 

Another recollection was looking into the eldest year class, and seeing them doing joined up writing... in pen!
