Hello all those Mundellans prior to 1950! Seems as though I am the first to enter this hallowed ground! I was around from 1946 through to 51, entering 1S with Mrs. Williams and then through the 'M' line through GCE and then for a short time in 6 Commercial.
I remember many names in my year, among them Margaret Slack, Pamela Gell, Maureen Scott, Pauline Moult, Irene Howe, Aileen Brown, Jill Shelbourne, Muriel Lacey, Gloria Sandell, June Shaw, Barbara Yarnell, Sheila O'Connor, Connie Brown, Ann Davis - not forgetting the guys - John Lakin, John Cave, Brian Moult, Terence Graham (our hero who rescued a youngster from drowning), Barry Morris, Alan Brown, Alan Boaler and many others in parallel forms and other years.
Miss Plunkett introduced us all to the joys of Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry, English Lit. and Lang., while 'Schoee' Schofield nurtured us up the school as our form teacher.
We were so proud to be part of the Jubilee year celebrations and wondered where we would all be
for the Centenary when we would all be 64.
Where were YOU?
As you check in, let's enjoy each other's stories - what you have done and achieved over the years and where you are now.
I will start the ball rolling - I have been living in California with my family (husband, two daughters) for the past 21 years. With gratitude to Barton Hart, I spent several years after leaving school with the Nottingham Opera Club in various chorus roles as a gypsy, village maiden, nun (!) Career-wise I taught commercial subjects for a while and now I'm involved in counselling services, which is most rewarding.
So, who will be next to join me?
Best wishes, wherever you are on the planet!
