peaple who were there around that time please contact me
I think Mr Blackband was the head when I was there and I think Mrs Rae left as I finished 5th year. I won the Elizabeth Rae prize in 1969 for getting most "O" levelsI was part of the first intake in 1956 and left at Easter 1960 . Mr Blackband was Headmaster and was it Mrs Pendleton his assistant. Among the many teachers names I remember, Mrs Rae, Rory & David O,Sullivan, Mr Bluet, Mr Phillips, Miss Iliff, a couple of the teachers were married who,s names have gone at the moment Among the names of classmates there was, Peter Nichols, Peter Hughes, John Rackham , remember Rackhams Wine Lodge. Sheila Holder, Anita Davis, Diane Hiley, she was my own favourite, Kathleen Terry, Anthony Robinson ( Antman ) Brendan Betts, Peter Earnshaw ,Jimmy Grafton, Eugene Ellis I could go on when I’ve had a rethink.If any or others not mentioned here are still around please feel free to contact me. Looking back now I can’t say I was happy at AW but it was part of growing up. John Harney. PS Was Robert Kilroy Silk really Headboy???
Attended archies till 1970 doesn't seem that long ago but isI was there between 1966 and 1970. I remember Kevin McNally, Greg Doyle. Pete Ryan and Paul Flatley, to name a few My last class teacher was Mr Hodder. When I applied to get into higher education in the late 70's he wrote me a great reference. He was the best teacher that I encountered during my time there. It was a happy school because of good mates, but with the exception of Mr Hodder I seem to recall a lot of the teachers just going through the motions.
Do you remember the leaving mass at the spaceship style church when we left just before Easter 1970?. You must have been a year ahead of me, as I don't recall you being in Bernie Hodder leaving class of "no hopers" as I heard one teacher call us. Some of us happily proved him wrong...Attended archies till 1970 doesn't seem that long ago but is
