I certainly remember you as Miss Michel. I was in Mr Sinclairs’ class at the time. I used to look after the rain gauge, you help us make the chart to plot the rainfall.Court Farm primary was my first school as well, as Miss Michel and was at the school for 2 years until 1968. I was thinking of my first class today as we were all affected by the horror of Aberfan. We sent toys to the survivors. I have very happy memories of the school but I am glad I am retired now. I am a governor at my grandchildren's school now and it seems impossible that we had time for a sit down and social chat at lunchtime. I am still in touch with Miss Powell,now with several grandchildren and one daughter a head teacher. Could go on at length but will look for photos.
