Swan from Queen Mary St. school.
and Mrs. Burgess, they were my favourites in the
fifties, I loved xmas at
school, when we did a play, and went to church
St Francis s its still there, so
is the school, I remember a Sandra Findlay,
Ronnie Ralston, he was greetin'
first day at school. the Hamilton sisters,
toerags the two of them caused mayhem
at school. and a distant cousin Janet Garth who
came for a short time to our
school from America, god she got treated like
royalty, because of her accent and
fancy clothes, she was so popular. that seems

passed the playground recently, thinking of the
slides we made in the snow, and
playing doublers against the wall, and in the
shed when it was lashing, wish I
could go back for one day. I visited it one time
about ten years ago, and remembered
the door stops on all the class doors, loved
playing with them. oh the memories.
