I remember Mr Davis teaching me at some point, but I am not on this photo, nor is Sylvia Miller or Barbara Parkinson. Norah

sorry Norah I spelt your name wrong. Did we go into different classes when we went to A.G.H from Orrell Council. I remember going to your house on City Road every lunch time when we were at Orrell Council

Is that the Mr Davis who had a heart attack at the school around 1965?

Comment by: Dalila Fearn nee Smith on 24th June 2010 at 21:07

yes, thats the same Mr Davies, and it was our class he was teaching and shouting at when he had his fatal attack, boy did we get in trouble that day. Has no-one got any photos of my class? I went in 1961 and my best friends were Carol Morley and Audrey Moleneux, anyone know what happened to Audrey please?

Sylvia
I remember all those names, trying to find anyone who knew me then - barbara parkinson

Re Sylvia
You must be sat between Brenda Glover and Ann Birchall but i thought the name was Jean ?.However the names you mention on 9th November 2009 are not the names of the pupils in this class although the name David Foy does ring a bell.As i say i was in this form and do remember them quite well.

Just searching schools and came across my photo. I remember most in the class. I moved to Australia in 1980.Studied as a Forensic. Social Worker and also my calling as a peace minister travelling the globe. Would love to hear from anyone who remembers me in my good days or others (lol). Well we were all kids back then. Blessings

Comment by: Reverend Jack Middlehurst on 16th March 2014 at 04:15

Is there anyone whom you know is living in Australia that I could make contact with. Would love to reminisce about the young days. Lol

Comment by: Rev Jack Middlehurst on 25th April 2014 at 06:53

I remember everyone. Hope everyone is doing great as these were good times. I am now a professional liar and trying to sue people for money.

Comment by: Reverend Jack Middlehurst on 26th August 2015 at 05:14

Not sure who posted the comments about me being a professional liar and suing people. Hope you are pleased whoever you are. Why do you have to lie about people. Maybe you need help?

Comment by: Betty Sue Lambert on 30th September 2015 at 00:48

That's not nice what you are doing Jack. You shouldn't lie about people and try to sue people. The past will haunt you and it always catches up when you least expect it.
