Does anyone recall the shower block with carbolic soap!!!

 

I remember Miss Bee and Miss Gebbard also Mrs. Mustell I think. Miss Nicholson used to take music and I actually sang with the choir at her wedding and Firth Park Methodist Church!

I went to Whitby Road infants and the juniors annexe between 1950 - 1956. I well remember Miss Gebbard in the infants and the head at the juniors Mr Saxon and teachers Messrs Edwards Pringle Cox and Bellamy. Still got the school reports from then. Lived on Tockwith Road in those days when it was all terraces and back to backs and walked to and from school every day.

Hiya, just found my old autograph book and Miss Nicholson, Miss Shepherd and Miss Pattinson (who I think was the head of juniors) all signed it!

Oh my gosh what a fantastic forum I went to greenlands school started in 1975 the head was Mr taylor and it then went on to be Mr Slee used to stand like a teapot with hands on hips.

 

I remember Mr Ellis always wondered why his carpet was dark green??

 

Remember the flying board rubber came whizzing past me in the direction of richard ward picked his nose wiped it on carpet I believe Ellis not impressed it left a nice chalky imprint when it hit the wall????????????? Does anyone remember Mrs Snell and her magic cream when you fell down what a fantastic school that WAS I used to live opposite next to the park.

i went to whitby rd school from 1971 until 1976/1977 i remember mr ellis very well we used to call him mr green for the obvious reasons lol, also remember the head master mr taylor, ive never ever come across an headmaster as strict in my whole life, i was once asked to go on an errand from my teacher to mr taylors office, i knocked on his door and he didnt answer so i thought he didnt hear me so i knocked again and he came straight out and slippered me, i will never forget the day, there i was only on an errand and got blinkin slippered for it, i went back to my class feeling very sorry for myself, i also used to love the assemblys were the teachers would choose a child to pick out a song for all to sing, and not forgetting the chocolate dundee biscuits and teacakes at break times, does anyone remember mr falzon from edale and mr albeya, sort of things we would get up to on april fools day were mixing the registers up so when all teachers opened register in a mornin they all had wrong ones, lol, those were the days,
