Playground fun at Golborne Parochial School in 1957

I remember this photo being taken in 1957 and I am the little boy in the tank top right at the back just to the left of Mrs Topping and just about to walk on the floor beam.
My name is Les Prior and I remember other pupils names - James Mason, Brenda Lloyd, Sheila/Shirley Lawrence, Angela Gleave, other names long forgotten I'm afraid, but faces never. Hope someone recognises themselves and I still have the original that my Mum kept.

No fat kids here. All look really healthy.

This reminds me so much of my own "babies' class" year at the old Ince Central School; little girls wearing skirts with attached shoulder-straps, and ribbons in their hair....lovely!

Hi Len. I fell off the climing frame that you can just see on the right of the picture and knocked myself out.

I attended St Thomas's from 1953 it isn't Mrs Topping. This is Miss Cadwalader who was a teacher.

Just been told about this photo, I am the curly haired one at the top of the slide - Janet Lawrence (not Sheila/Shirley). Had a younger sister Sylvia.
