This is Mrs Helen Moore, of whom I have very fond memories: always very kind. I never heard her say a cross word to anyone. She even gave me some of her old school prizes as she knew I loved reading. I'm grateful to David John Govan for putting this photo on the site.(Delete 'nospam' from my address if replying.)

I remember the 1st year at school with Miss Moore with fond memories, followed by Miss Dean and then the redoubtable Miss Molyneux who really prepared us for Junior school

A name from the past that has just sent a shiver down my spine... I may even wet myself!

Miss Molyneux!!!!

My god she was a tyrant! But.. but... she was a damned good teacher! Miss Dean I remember, but it is Mrs Moore I will always remember with fondness, they simply don't make them like her any more.

I was in miss Moore`s class around 1966. (I`m sure she lived in Parbold. lovely lady) I remember miss Dean and mrs Hindley. No-One taught by mrs Molenuex will ever forget her. i thought she really hated me, but to be fair to her, she hated everyone. :-)
