St Catherine's School 1969

End of year photos

By Jean Gilby

These two class group photos were taken in 1969. Do you recognise yourself in the pictures?

My daughter Elaine Gilby is seated second from right in the top photo, the teacher on the left is Mrs Lygo.

My son Martin Gilby is in the centre of the front row of the bottom photo and the teacher of that class was Mr Thomas.

  • The teacher on the right hand side in the top photo is Mrs Brooks. She lived in the corner house in Presdales drive. I attended this school until 1970 then moved to Fanshawe next door.

    I have fond memories of this school and Mrs Brooks who I remember reading “the lion the witch and the wardrobe” to the class on friday afternoons.

    Happy days
