Oh yes I remember the flat! I can remember cleaning it but not cooking. My family always thought I was dreaming when I mentioned that. "What! Way back then?!" Yes I remember Miss Ferris's severe haircut but I'm afraid I didn't learn much from her class. We used to think they were all quite old!  The PE teachers - Miss Telford and Miss Irwin or Irvine. I could be confusing that with Carr's Glen but I don't think so. Miss Irwin/Irvine was distinctive looking in that she had a broad nose bridge which made her eyes look wide apart but she was nice looking. I saw her in town one day years later and realised just how young she was! I think we got a good education at the Model in those days due to very dedicated teachers. How time flies, feels like another world!!

Any of the former Girls Model girls remember Mavis Holohan.
She’s my aunt and I would guess she was there possibly ‘59 to ‘64 ?
Before that I think she went to Wheatfield Primary.
