Hi Brenda, what a photo and what a lot of memories. Mr. MacArthur? I seem to remember him as Mr. Macaruth ( I don't know how it was spelt but sounded like that).

How wonderful to see this photo bringing back such happy memories of my ten years at Whaley school. I often think about the Headmaster Mr Hallam particularly the recent 100th anniversary of the 1st World War because when he came into your classroom he would perch himself on one of the front desks and start telling us about his experience in the trenches during the war.

Remember Mr Hallam had a tin of Dolly Mixtures in his pocket which he called Tom Dodd if you were good you got a dip in the tin.

This photo was taken in 1955 the year I was in the top class. I have this photo and it is signed by everyone of the teachers.

I may be wrong here, but it looks like a photograph was taken of the teachers and a copy brought out every year.
Up to now from 1952 to 1955. I suppose it would work until the staff changed.

Yes I remember Mr Hallam with fond memories, I thought he called the dolly mixtures 'TUTTIE FRUTTIES' or something like that.

Marlene - did you live on Chapel Road and had a sister called Marjorie and a brother called Bert?
If so then I remember you.
