The teacher on the left of the back row is Ray Unsworth. Used to drive a Ford Anglia.

I can remember a very rude awakening at st Joseph's when Mr Caine slammed down a pencil block on my desk as he was telling the story of albert getting his head bitten off by a lion. It was just after lunch and I was drifting off to sleep.

The man at the back with the red jumper is Mr Mullaney he took sports with the boys mostly rugby, although I think he did have a teaching role too.

The man in the red top is Mr Mullaney ... all the girls thought he were right sexy !!! Very 70s !!!! I think all the female teachers fancied him .... ;-)

the teacher on the front row 1st on the left I think is Miss Eccleston, she used to be in charge of the resource area. Mr Caine was the headmaster then I think it was Mr Lynch who isnt on this photo.

i recall Mr Mullany at St Josephs first and then when St Judes opened in 1969. He coached the rugby team, later Wigan School Boys. Also Ray Unsworth. Im sure he had something to do with the match commentry at Central Park. Mr Caine did woodwork and lived near St John Rigby.

i rember going to butlins with the school and mr mullaney got drunk one night and some of us carried him back to his room and we dropped him in a puddle . those were the days

Comment by: pat walsh on 7th February 2009 at 14:41

Ray Unsworth also taught at St Aidans Winstanley. I see him somtimes at Total Fitness gym

Comment by: Jackie Ivory (nee Brown) on 23rd May 2009 at 14:51

Mr Caine taught us how to score a pattern into a rubber mat using a tool then used an ink roller to print it. I also remember his poem about the boy having his head bitten off by a lion! Mr Unsworth was my favourite though.

Comment by: paul arkwright on 31st May 2009 at 23:56

Was Mr Caine the headmaster with white slaver in the corners of his mouth ?

Comment by: paul scott on 14th January 2010 at 13:31

The teachers names on the front row, left to right are: Miss Eccleston, Miss Darlington, Mr Caine, Miss Hart and finally Miss Groves.

Comment by: dave blake on 1st April 2010 at 22:33

Mr Cain was known to us (70-74) as 'Sappy' due to the sap in h corner of his mouth!! and also when he 'sapped' us (clipped our ears for cutting our fingers on the woodwork tools!!!!!!!!!)

Comment by: Michelle Curless on 13th August 2010 at 13:12

Wow! This brings back memories. Miss Hart my fave teacher. I remember most of my class mates too. Yes all the girls had a crush on Mr Mullaney. Mrs Leadbetter (a bit scary!!) bet she's not really though.

Comment by: Chris Leyland on 16th August 2010 at 23:30

I was in Mr Blackledges and Mr Mullvaney's class and I had a miss Hughes but don't remember her from the photo, and I thought the lady second from left on front row was Mrs Darwin, but perhaps some of the ladies got married and changed names. I also remember Mr Moor who used to make use sing crap old songs and cane people a lot and Miss Hart who had much PMT, the head master was a Mr Lynch when I was there.

Comment by: hannah walker on 30th January 2011 at 11:28

I have just finished at St Judes and none of them teachers were there except from mr Unsworth who is now a governer. B y the looks of it,St judes looks like its changed a whole lot.
