I would say 1956/1957

These look like my classmates, but I don't know why I am not in the picture. I did have a lot of sick days because I hated school. Funny how I became a college professor in Canada! Names escape me, but I think the fourth from the left in the back row is Robert Shovlar, and the fifth is Sally Ryder. I would think it would be more like 1959/60. There are some more photographs in the Manorway section on Friends Reunited, one of which includes me!

My eyesight is not as good as it used to be. Is it possible to have a larger photograph? Thanks

Thanks John. I can see it now. I would say the picture is around 1956. I am in the picture and I was born in 1946. The pupils would have been about 10 years old just before going to St. Chads.

I started Manorway in 1956, but would have still been in the Infants at that time. I don't know any of the children in the picture, but all the surnames are very familiar, I would have known their younger brothers and sisters. My maiden name was Bloss.

That's my sister, Sandra in the front row, second in from the right. She has been Sandra Constable since 1964. I was at Manorway Primary from 1953-1959.

Alison Nicholls, did your mum used to live in Burns Place when she was young, as I think I may know her? My single name was Hollands and we lived at no 27.
