I think the girl on the 1st row 2nd from right is Diane Day and the 2nd row 3rd left is Anne Davies. I can,t figure out why Diane Day is in the photo as she was in my class which was a couple of years later. I know this because one of the girls in my class Nora Davies was Anne's sister.I also think the girl 2nd row 2nd right is Pauline Cottrial Again someone in my class and younger that Anne Davies. Anyone know any better????

The young girl seated on the floor is still the apple of my eye. Memories from long ago when she was employed at the Wigan Infirmary Canteen. In the past but not forgotten !!!

I have only just found this web site,so I have just spent time trying to remember names.I am first row sixth from left.
there were 7 or 8 girls from this class (me included) stayed on at school for an extra year to take the Higher School certificate, this was an experimental class.

I was Head GIrl of the girls school in that year.

I came to Autralia as a $10 pom in 1968.
Would love to hear from any "old" class mates
