  1. Hi I was at OLIS 1952-1957. Our little reunions are at The Graduate, opposite Sheffield City Library. There are usually about 6 or 7 "girls" turn up.
  2. Hello again Norrie, Some very interesting points again, what a memory!! The four houses were the same, Kelvin, Newton, Shakespeare and Tennyson. I was in Tennyson, yellow. The Jessop you mentioned no relation to me as far as I know. Uniform changed, we had grey and burgundy. I remember the music room being at the top of the girls staircase, down to Dolly Hardwick's lab. I always enjoyed music, especially singing and was in as many choirs as I could be! Obviously because we joined OLI in 1952 I don't remember any of your classmates, but some of the teachers were still there, including Alfred Moss, French, and by the time we arrived there was also another Mr.Moss teaching French - confusing. Well thanks again for all your interesting news. ---------- Post added 10-02-2016 at 11:16 ---------- ---------- Post added 10-02-2016 at 11:20 ---------- Well Norrie, we had a reunion of our classmates yesterday and I told them about your interesting input on here. They were all keen to hear about it and no doubt will be taking a look for themselves. We meet up every 6 weeks or so for coffee in Sheffield and some of us stay on for lunch. Always good to meet up with old schoolmates.
  3. Wow Norrie what a history lesson you gave us even though you were there before most of us. It was interesting to read all your news and many of the teachers you mention were still there for us. Of course we don't mind you joining in, it's great to hear from anyone. It's good to know that Pop Gregory as we called him, was walking around playing his invisible violin when you were there too!! Hope to hear more from you ---------- Post added 05-02-2016 at 11:37 ---------- Wow Norrie what a history lesson you gave us even though you were there before most of us.

Hope to hear more from you
  4. Just wanted to bring us up front again!! Had a nice Christmas reunion and have met sisnce in January. Would love to see more classmates join us!
  5. I was at Balfour Darwins during that period. Did you work in the Wicker? I played in the netball and rounders teams too.
  6. Sorry can't help, but I was also in the opening ceremony and it's a time I will never forget
  7. It is indeed a small world. I was at the Congs from about 1944 too but younger than you (sorry!!) Yes, we live not far from Meadowhead in Dronfield Coal Aston actually Nice to be in touch anyway
  8. Thank you. I'm sure it will. We only live round the corner from one another in Dronfield. Perhaps you were at Darnall Congs the same time as us maybe. I went there for over 40 years before moving. I don't recall the name Pauline May though I must admit.
  9. Yes Rev Sydney Eyre was lovely and they did live on Handsworth Road. Congs is short for Congregational church I guess! and that's how it was always known and still is in conversation. My close friend now is one I made at Darnall Congs in Sunday School and we go on holiday together with our husbands. Always have many many happy memories. Cheers to you too!
  10. I lived on Pearce Road, off Prince of Wales Road. I and brothers and sisters were all christened at Darnall Congs.
  11. I remember the Peacock. I worked at Arthur Balfour's in the Wicker, later to become Balfour Darwins, and we often had our lunch at the Peacock. Very nice it was too.
  12. I went to Darnall Congs and enjoyed the Sunday School Anniversaries. It was a steep platform and the lads used to make it rock!! Also Whitsuntide and the parades into High Hazels Park and then the tea and games afterwards. Happy days.
  13. My family lived on Pearce Road, next entry up from the corner shop (Woods). Remember the chippy (Brunts I think they called them) and spent lots of happy times in the area
  14. Just had a lovely Christmas meal with 8 school mates from 1952-57. Lovely meal and good fellowship together. Would love it if we could trace more of our classmates.
