Prince Edward School, 1940/50/60s

Recommended Posts

I was there in the 70s. Cant remember the names off all my teachers, but the ones I do remember are Mr Dean, Mr Hibbert, Mrs Drury, Mrs Titman, Miss Goodwin, Miss Chadwick. I think the headmistress of the infants school while I was there was Mrs Harrison, and the headmaster of the junior school was Mr Barron.

We were in houses which were all Welsh Castles. I was in Harlech and was captain along with Kim Clarke who was a babe and who i had a secret crush on!!!

 

Wasnt Harlech the yellow one? I was in Conway, which was blue, and I think Caernarfon was red and Caerphilly was green.

Well done for remembering how to spell them! I didnt fancy looking them up....You got the colours right, it was strange but the reds always seemed to have the best kids, good at sports, and us in the yellow team always seemed to struggle. Remember sports day being really competitive with the teachers getting fired up as they were all in houses as well. Do you remember the league table in assembly with all the coloured shields. They used to slide your house shield up if you got loads of house points. I have a great photo somewhere with us in the school team from 1971 posing in the hall, wish i could find it!

Anyone remember climbing over the wall to get onto the field by the shed in the school yard?

Didn't the field have the old air raid shelters underneath? Seem to remember the vent chimneys sticking up through the field. I didn't climb over the wall but I'm sure my brother did on many occasion.

Thats right used to have vents sticking out of the gound as I remember. Quick way to get onto what we used to call pit field, pretty overgrown place at that time.

My mother used to tell me not to play on pit field as the huge cracks were brought about with the mining underneath and one day it would all fall in. Didn't believe in her fairy tales so we used to play there anyway especially round the huge mucky pond. What is it like now? Can you still walk from behind the firestation right down to St Teresa's?
