omg that's evil ::) lol the 2 teachers you see never taught us but miss Graig was our form teacher for that yr we were 4f but she used to teach us art, our last yr at school we never got any real lessons but were taught how to light a fire!!! we got to bath a baby doll. and learn how to look after a baby..and told the facts of life by fr Murphy according him..
 
the best was we all knew how to light a fire and bath a baby lol i think!!they were getting us wee housewives ready to face the world lol
 
when i went to the school  a few yrs back there were girls seniors with their boy friends, one or 2 expecting a baby (them baby class,s would of help them lol )and their car keys and all you seen was a car load of brown bombers leaving school lol...
 
miss begley was our form teacher when i started 1F  do you remember the ribbons and your house button.. oh how i would love to go for my school dinner  :smile:

Funny thing is, I started in 1968 but I never remember us ever getting a class photo taken -maybe they just left me out 'cause we wouldn't have had the money to pay for it! LOL Remember getting detention because I didn't have the money to pay for the Alter Flowers, the Missions and whatever the other 2d was for.  Sr. Mary made the statement to me "I bet you are one of these wee girls who buys cigarettes and matches with the money your mother gives you for these!!"  Aul cow!
 
I told her No I wasn't, just didn't have the money! to which she replied, "It's only 6d!"  Aye it was, but so was my bus fare for the day and my sister and I had to walk to school and back again up the Glen Road, as my Mum didn't have the money! -
 
Remember getting the 'Good Conduct Badge" 4 weeks in a row, deal was if you got that, then you got tea with Sr. Gen, and the Friday afternoon off!!!  Yep! they overlooked me for that!!!
 
Was a great school no doubt but your face either fitted or it didn't.  Remember meeting Sr. Gen many years later when she was attending a meeting in Stormont when I worked there, by my unusual name alone she would have known me, yet, never once did acknowledge me or she say, "Look how well you have done I proud of the fact that you are an ex-pupil!"  Ah well, such is life!  After that, anyone asking me where I went to school I just answered - "I didn't!"  LOL
 
 
I only got drunk, I never got stupid!

Rathbone Do you remember a music teacher called Margarete King?  She was there when the school opened.
 
She was my Mother's Cousin, but a fat lot of good that did me!!

*I remember Miss King, she was very pretty.  Did she live around the Monastery?  Kashmere Road.
 
Also remember Miss O Reilly the other music teacher.
