I spent 5 happy years at the Convent from 1945 to 1950. It was a pity it was demolished as it was a lovely building both inside and out. Does anyone recognise themselves from the photo? - that's me, front row lst on right! Maureen Lester (nee Mitchell)

Great picture Maureen. Everyone looking very prim and proper for the photographer.

Lots of memories of the convent-
I was there 1959-1964, anyone got any photos of this period
Sister Marie-Therese was the headmistress, a formidable lady!

Does anyone know if photographs of the stained glass 'house' windows (in the Salle) exist? If anyone has photos, please post them to this website. Thanks (in hope).
