A much better job than mine, D Tease!

Comments by DTease, 21st December 2017  
I think it has more to do with Photoshop than me Mick.

DTease & Mick: Well done on the photos nice job, but Veronica needs a little bit more help with her droop. Can any of you lift up her left eyeball.

Veronica. "What does the shield represent,or have I missed the answer to the question somewhere,?"

Comments by Veronica, 23rd December 2017  
The Shield was kept in the school hall Albert (near the Sacred Heart statue). I know there were engravings put on every year from way back. Every year there was a swimming gala at the baths in Millgate and we had a team that took part against other schools in Wigan. I remember Whelley School taking part mainly. The three girls on the back row were really good swimmers and they were coached so that made a difference I think. I would love to know what happened to it. The Shield must have belonged to the school as it was always in place there.

Mmmmm- all I can say Dtease I was abot 12 /13 then and there was 3 classes above me and a few out of every class made up the teams. ( I don't know why I was in it!)

Wigan Elementary Schools Swimming Association was founded 1899 and they held a Swimming Gala every year according to Google.

Did you hold their towels, Veronica?

Probably the best of a bad bunch- It's the taking part after all. ... And those nuns were 'holy terrors'!
