SOUTHDOWN SCHOOL

Various Class photographs from early 1980's

By Bob & Joy Jackson

Some photos from the Mr. Dalton (Head Teacher) era.

This was of course the old Southdown School (on the same site) before it was re-built.

Our children, Paula, Debbie and Ian are in the photos and we remember and still see many of the others shown including Martin Edwards (Teacher in check jacket - lower picture).

I think I've seen me in two photo's. I'm Geraldine Urry, nee Fuller. One photo was with Mr Blake and the other one was with Mrs Axford. I recognise some peole like Leanne Clark, Claire Baker, Marie Seymour and Kenny Higgs...

Where are you in the photographs Geraldine? And is it possible to point out where the others are that you mention too?  Have you any memories of being at Southdown School? Editor

Wow guys, you have such good memories, I am in the top picture Joanne Wrigley/Barry, I was good mates with Emma, some familiar names, also remember Lee Piree (boy with glasses). I have fond memories of being in Mr Blakes class, he was such a nice teacher. Also remember Jean Cantell Dance School in town.
