Hi peter this is the photo your mum gave me a copy of i hadn't a photo myself. Have to say school days weren't the happiest for me, just liked being home with my mam!Lots of good people on that photo though, it was one teacher i didn't particularly like but never mind!Can you remember everyone on it? Stephen speakman,Norman Holland,James Duffy are there, some i'm not sure of Gina Klaka,Bernadette McCloughlin and JulieGlynn are the other names i can recall. wonder what everyone is doing now, sadly Colin Bilsbrough,Karen F and Andrew Gallagher i believe have died, hope you and your family are ok and tell your mum i will call round with my granddaughter Gracie one day soon.
