I think that the teacher on back row 4th from the right is Miss Gleeson. I remember doing "bob a job" for her. She lived in Walkden Avenue at the time.

I am Miss Veasey's niece, Anne (nee Reece), and I understand that all the staff are as follows: from back row, Alice Lenegan (who taught me at the school in top infants, 1970), Frances Gleeson, Madge Veasey (my aunt), Nellie Doherty, Winnie Lythgoe. Front row, Brenda Green, Nellie Underwood, John McDermott, Cis Rynn, and Mary Brown.
