Brings back memories of the 50s Walter, and of the teachers, Mrs Dickson, Mrs Moss and Mrs Stott who was not slow at slapping the back of your a hand with a ruler on occasions. We usually deserved it and it never did anyone any harm. Happy days.

Hi Dorothy, just noticed your last comment about Mr Greenalgh, yes I remember him, and his AJS motorcycle, he wore a leather helmet with those split glass goggles and do you remember the chappy who would tune the piano, he was blind, his dog would sit alongside him whilst he worked !, Good to look back isn't it.

Hi Walt. I do remember the chappie tuning the piano, I think he went to all the schools. What year were you at Wigan Rd Methodist school. Which
School did you go to when you left, and what was the year. It is good to to reminisce.

Hi Dorothy, sorry but I have only just seen your comments... I was at this school from 1952 until leaving for Aspull Secondary school in 1958/9. I left school in 1962 and started working for a living. I'm now retired and have lived over in North Yorkshire since 1983. - I guess you were at this school before me, Best wishes.
