Prefects Christmas Party - 1956

By John Hills

The Prefects party was held in one of the three concrete building which stood behind the main building, probably the top one near the girls playground. If I remember correctly one was for woodwork and I think the middle one was used for art and pottery classes at this time. 

I wonder if you could help fill in the blank spaces or even correct our mistakes and put some names to the faces, looks like they were all having a good time, sucking there lollies!

These are some of the names we have been given:-

Back row:- Left to right

? , Ann Browne, ? , David Hedges, Eric Seymour, John Hills, Michael Funnell.

Front row:- Left to right.

? , Joyce Nicholson, Maurice Dunstall ( looking over her shoulder), Frances Giles, ? , Myrtle Woolven, Kay Page (slightly behind her), Margaret Starley, Stepenie (peering over) Les Templeman (shoulder), Adele Shires, Norma Sargent, Malcolm Jones, ?, ?, ?,

Wow. Great to see those faces from the past. I know a good many of them. Nice to see Les Templeman again. I worked with him on the footplate for a while at Newhaven.

Thanks Adele for saving this photo. Brings back so many memories of my earlier life. So many familier faces to see again after all these years. I moved to Australia in 1970, so once again Adele thank you.
