Cindy Lowe: The collection of these memories has been sporadic, from those people found at random and willing, from those who have time and inclination to share the memories, and those who have been referred by others. Some memories are from the 1940s, wartime days. In all the collection is but a tiny sample across all establishments and all eras. Some of the teachers who worked at schools in our town are legendary, others don’t get a mention in this collection, they may have been less popular or not memorable enough to appear here and so are consigned to obscurity despite all their efforts, but better than being singled out for detrimental reasons. Some are remembered for their discipline or their idiosyncrasies and not for what they actually were supposed to have taught us, others have been inspirational in influencing our future.
Our thanks to everyone who’s contributed memories and photographs.
