Apologies to anyone whose name I have spelt wrongly or forgotten. It was
27 years ago!
Contrary to how it looks in the photo, Mr. Smith did, in fact, have
legs! Karen Wilbourne, who is not in uniform, had been in a hockey match
and had just got back in time for the photo, if I remember correctly. At
this time the three forms were split alphabetically, 'V' form had
surnames beginning A-H, 'M' was I-R and 'S' was S-Z. The more observant
will be wondering why Kath Gonnella was in our form; she moved into the
area and joined the school in 4th or 5th year, I expect that 5S was the
smallest form at that point.
Can anyone fill in the names I have forgotten? It would be great to hear
from anyone from 'S' form or that year. What are you doing now? Come on
and post a message on the board!
