In  1965, some High School girls of varying ages  took an educational cruise on SS Dunera to Spain and Portugal. They visited Vigo, Cadiz and Lisbon and many were very sick in a rough Bay of Biscay!  Here, two rather glamorous teachers, Miss Ramage left and Miss Field right, enjoy time on the beach at Vigo. This photo was kindly donated by Marion Hudson (1962-69). Does anyone else have photos or memories of this trip ?

The following four images were taken on the school field in July 1962. The first is form 1S and the others are of some older girls dressed for a performance. The form teacher of 1S was Miss Shrives although the teacher on the photo does not appear to be her. Can anyone help ?

Remember school summer dresses which we all made in first and second years, along with a cookery apron with drawn threads ?  The dress of course had to be regulation length  have a 2 inch sleeve and be made using blue and white material. Here Gillian  and Heather Brodie wear a very fetching drop waisted version!
