Myers Grove Comp in the 60s

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recall the names of the husband and wife teachers who taught

Economics - Commerce etc. They were fifty plus and very old fashioned.

 

I don't know how long they had been at Myers but they were there 67/68

People keep telling me it was John and Sheila Sherwood - no it was not - they were athletes and taught PE. I don't think John ever worked at Myers Grove.

John taught at Firth Park.

Think they were called Leefe

 

That would be a bit of coincidence given that there were Kel and Helen Leaver but both taught PE and wouldn't have been there in the 60's nor in their 50's then!

I was there from 65 to 70. Got no idea who you are talking about but I do know the couple that Chris M is reffering to.

 

This is a quote from the Myers Grove Section on Friends Reunited - if you don't known site their is a section where ex pupils can comment on teachers.

 

Quite begins:

Mr & Mrs Leafe

 

The 'old married couple'listed in the 'memory' section were Mr and Mrs Leafe. They weren't quite so old when I knew them in 1965! Her nickname was 'Lettuce'- which rather suited her. Was she still called that in 1980?

 

Ends

That's fine, problem solved then. I didn't say you were wrong, just that it was a coincidence in names - another married couple with one letter difference. I also said it couldn't have been Leaver through the description. Leafe is the answer.

 

Thanks Dunney - interesting!

Thanks for that info doc. Never heard of the Leavers though.

 

One thing that sticks in my memory - a PE teacher called Dubberly - he was a bit of a bully and got his payback in the staff/pupils rugby match - some kind soul punched him in the stomach and he was doubled up for about 5 mins

- great days !!!

80's + which is one of the reasons it couldn't be them.

Dubberly wasn´t a PE teacher. He was an english teacher who played rugby.
