Hi I remember Mrs Galota, she was the form teacher for the lower class in the

1st. year. Lovely lady, though quite handy with the slipper (wern't they all)

Also Mr Rourke, didnt have him for any subject.

Was that by one of the lovely sisters of charity ? Miss Brown was very happy

at St. Joes' was happy to use what came to hand.

Perhaps she had a heart. I remember Miss Brown at St. Joes going down a line

of children waiting to go into class, we were making too much noise so she went along the line smacking legs.She was the J4 teacher and she also took needlework with the girls. This particular time we were making peg bags (wow) I'd done mine wrong. In a panic to unpick it, I cut a big hole in the material. I was having sleepless nights for a week, worrying about what she would say. The dreaded day dawned, and the work was handed out, I waited for my name to be called out , nothing happened. I opened my work, she had

darned the hole and it looked as good as new. That was one of the days Imelda Brown had a heart it didn't happen very often .
