Pupil at Burleigh 1965-1971
By Bob Hilder
I remember some lovely teachers at this school. Mr Ebeling, Mrs Hickman, Miss Webb and Mrs Garment. There were also two teachers who today would not be allowed to teach as they were bullies. Miss Childs used to slap you if you made a mistake and Mrs Witney would humiliate and make you feel very small in front of the class. We had a lad in our class who had a terrible stammer and Mrs Witney made him stand up and shouted at him to pronounce his sentences without stammering. I have some good memories and some very bad memories.
