NEWHAVEN INFANTS SCHOOL

1955 Third Years

By Paul Blackman

Found this photo which I think was taken about 1955 when I think we were in our 3rd Year at infants School. The School was on the site of the Leisure Centre.

I can remember most of the names so here goes and if you know those missing or I have any wrong then it would be good to hear from you.

Back Row Left to Right: Dennis Templeman, Peter Kirby, Eric Ranger, Paul Blackman, Miss Hedham, Jennifer Moore, Derek Waite, Peter Ingram, ?

Middle Row: Trevor Ireland, / ? / ? / Valerie Marshall, William East, Janice Moore (maybe), / ? / ? /

Front Row: / ? / Linda Baker, Will Ashdown, / ? / Anita Bishop, / ? / Kenny Boxall, Geoff Corlett.

I know some others must also have this photo so it would be good to fill in the missing names.

I think the boy in the middle row, 2nd from the left is Claude Woods. He lived in Arundel Road with a younger sister Jasmine. The family emmigrated to New Zealand.

This teacher is Miss Angela Armon. Other teachers at this time were:- Mrs. Heddon, Mrs. Greenfield, Mrs. LaVoix, Miss Blann, Mrs. Dajeuneux, Miss Tedham (the spellings of the French names are probably quite wrong!). Headmistress was Miss Hatwell and the Caretaker was Mr Wood. I can picture him riding his maroon BSA 250, he with a flat cap and Mrs. Wood on the back wearing a flying helmet!
