I know Pam Eatock very well, she and her husband are very close friends of me and the wife. I will have to point this out to her.

I recognise one or two names on here and they seem around my age at the time. Did some of them go to Ashton Central school?

Comments by debbie, 24th April 2009  
It is not Neil Cox it is Barry Cox because Neil was in my class and was slightly older.

We all looked like a mottley crew, where are they all now?

Can you believe it's 45 years ago since this was taken? I'm still teaching and living in Rochdale with my almost 21 year old son. What's everyone else doing?

Yes this photo was supplied by my mum,who still lives in Abram.I bet it's spent most of its life in a shoe box.That jumper if mine must have been a 1off .Why did the class room always smell of stale milk. The "Milk monitors" were to blame !!
