Memories of my teachers:
Brother Bede was my music teacher for the Church Choir.
Miss Trow was my teacher in the last year.
I attended Mr Minahan's wedding (he was my Geography teacher) & sang solo (in Latin) at St. Chad's in Birmingham. He married my French Teacher Miss Conti.
My first year teacher was Miss Philomena McElhone & she was a bridesmaid at the above wedding.
My cookery teacher & favourite of all was Sister Mercedes. She spoilt me rotten!
Brother Nilus was our Headmaster
IT WAS A STRICT BUT GREAT SCHOOL & I LOVED IT. I NEVER HAVE OR WOULD FORGET THE TEACHING I RECEIVED THERE.
- After school:
- Up until 4yrs ago I resided in Cape Town South Africa (for 27yrs). My son & daughter & grandbabies still reside there & I return every Dec to Feb with my partner.
I would love to hear from anyone who remembers me.
