Hi Paul:
Are you one of the Faulkner's who lived on Cavendish Road you brothers being Brian, David & Micky?

Hi Paul

Yes I went to South Harringay in the 1950's and I believe we were in the same class.  My name then was Christine Ace.  Other people in our class were Linda Chinsky, Marion Bartlett, Victor Millard, Jimmy Dietman ( not sure of spelling) many others. We all went to the Isle of Wight during our last year there.  Have very happy memories of my time there.

Hi Christine. Are you talking about 55 onwards . I really need photos of them years to remember those names as my memory can not go that far back. Teachers names Etc Was the headmaster Mr Roberts? Are you still living in harringay. Can not remember the trip to the Isle of Wight . How did we travel. If you can jog my memory would be so pleased. Hope we talk again Paul

Hi Paul

Yes we started in the infants around 1954/55 and we had a teacher called Miss Diprose. The headmaster when we left the juniors was Mr Edmondson.  Our last teacher was Mrs Dunn.  I dont remember anyone with the name of Roberts.  There was a Mr Garnsworthy and Mrs Gage.  One of our teachers - not sure whether in the infants or juniors married Mrs Gages son and we all went the wedding. I do have photos, is there anyway I can contact you directly and I will send the photos to you.
