I am the little squirt with the light coloured jacket middle row, fringe, second from left.(Carol Greenall),centre of that row is Annette / Anita ??. Next to her with the striped jacket is Julie Wilkinson, then Moira hall with the glasses and at the end of the row is Sandra Dickinson. We were the youngest in the group. The girls in front were a year older (I think). At the girls at the back, the older ones. I was at the convent from 1970 - 73, then our year got moved to Thomas Moore for the 4th and 5th form.

Hi Colette, I remember you. I was in Jerningham. The trip was 1971 - just found some photos with dates on. I've met up with Kathryn Dodson and Eileen Lamb in recent years.

I remember this trip. It was 1971. On the back row next to the teacher is Mary Gaskell, then Julie Atherton and I think regina Schickhoff. Anyone got photos of the trip to Germany the year before with Miss Rigby and Mr Savage who got married teh year after this.
