Two of my class mates were Sheila Wankling and Christine Scanlon. Age and time have erased some most of the names but many faces are still fresh in my memory .
Hi. I was there at the same time as you. Veronica Rafferty. We were the first girls to go there. My friends were Mary Webb, Marie Oliver, Janet Shaw, Ed Mitchell. Roger Cotterill, Elizabeth Hemmings. I remember Sheila Wanklin and also Christine Scanlon. I loved school.

I think he was the history teacher. Not Paddy Feehan. Mr Groves maybe? Big grin Big grin Big grin Big grin

Hi, I went to Bishop Ullathorne from 1959 to 1962. I had Miss Austin as my first year teacher, then Miss Molyneaux, Miss Austin again and in my final year Miss Healey. Miss Stephenson was head teacher. I was Pat Kirk then, I remember Brenda Cleary, Susan Loughran, Evelyn Cook, Rosemary Gaggini, Josie Bull, Patsy Smith, Eileen O'Dea, Barbara Dempsey. I would love to hear from anyone who was at school with me.

I was at Ullathorne Girls from 59 to 65 and I remember these class photos being taken outside. I loved school but not homework. We had Miss Austen, Mrs. Ghent, Mrs.Van Hee. Miss O'Connell who had sisters at the school was our sports teacher and Miss Molyneaux had sisters at the school too. We had the striped dresses in house colours, red for Manning and green, yellow and blue for the others - very Harry Potter. Just before I left the fabric was changed to a pink check. We could make our dresses in the sewing class if we wanted to. We had quite an assortment of headgear to choose from. The trusty beret, held on by a dozen hairclips, a soft bowler and in summer a straw boater or bowler. The latter lasted about five minutes in the rain. In retrospect the grading system in the school was awful with classes 1 to 4 in each year. If you came at the bottom of you class you were relegated to the lower stream and the top person in the lower class would come up.

I used to go to the school on the regular buses and make the long, long trip down the road from the bus stop. Occasionally, though, a few of us would take the Midland Red a little way up the Kenilworth Road and cut behind the houses to come in by the tennis courts. What were we thinking! We always got caught and we had to pay to use the bus.

Would any one remember an acquaintance of mine named Helen Telus who was a pupil at Ullathorne, and was possibly head girl. I think she left about 1969/70. Sadly I only recently found out that she passed away a couple of years ago at an early age leaving a husband and 2 sons.
