I can't remember why this photograph was taken. Some names I remember are: Colletta Hilton, Aileen Oddie, Christine Gregory, Rita, Barbara, Mary Heaton, Lynne Worsley and upside down perhaps are Kathleen ? and Anita?

I am the girl doing the 'crab', I think that's what it is called.

Hahaha! Just had an email from my sister to say she's the one doing the crab at the front!

she was previously known as Carol Ann McLoughlin !

She probably posted a comment before I did too! :)

I don't remember the photograph being taken but I remember the circumstances. We had a visit from some pseudo intellectuals from the Department of Education and Frank Gregory attempted to impress by making us all wear those ridiculous green knickers. I don't know where they got them from but I remember being horrified when we all had to put them on (boys as well). I think the sight of various boys in green knickers convinced Frank Gregory that it wasn't a particularly good idea and hence the reason only girls appear in the photograph. We would have been scarred for life!!!

If you think about it..this photo is poetry in motion..each girl is in a different stance..it's really a work of art.

That was my sister Alex's class, although she's not on the picture. I was lucky enough to have been taught by Mr. Deakin for two years. What a great teacher he was. Inspiring.
