Might be '51 it looks like my class Tom. That could be Linda Morris holding on to the lady. Eileen Towey with her hand over her mouth. Ann Cartwright at the back,. I must be somewhere about. Thanks for posting Tom.

I'm never that lucky Irene, but I am on a video from the Whit Walks aged about 9 ... I'm putting my feet down like ready money.... most ungainly and with a wreath on my head that would have looked better on our front door...;-))

That made me laugh, Veronica, and was just what I needed! xx

I might be wrong Tom but the lad looking towards the camera looks like one of the Govans (Kevin?)

Veronica: That’s got to be you on the other side straining your head around to get on the photograph.
I don’t think that lady wanted to be there, looks like she’s had enough.

I remember the dresses - they were pale green organdie with tiny white dots on, full of pin tucks to let down as you grew.
I don't know the lady - she wasn't a teacher. I agree John she's looking fed up. No that's not me, I would have been at the front of the column, I was always one of the tiniest. The other little girl is Maureen Frain . RIP.
