Hi William I went to Ballygo 64-68. I remember you in Mr. McComb's class in Argyle Primary, I was also in Mrs. Anderson's Class and Mr. Crighton (Various ways of spelling this name but this is how we pronounced it) who was quite handy with the cane. I would like to get in touch with Bill (duck) Donald if you could help. I started Ballygo in Sept. 64 class 1.O pronounced one O, Jasper was the form teacher progressed to 2G2, 3G2 & 4G2 and left in June 68. Lots of memories and would like to contact anyone who is interested in a reunion. Regards.

William I have cut and pasted this from Friends Re-united, so I think my old memory cells aren't to bad ;) I have also deleted some info from it as well.

Linda Rossborough contacted me asking if I didn't remember her, of course I remember her and her brothers Len and Jim. I'm sure they lived about Wigton St. Sorry for the omission linda but I'm sure you would agree I have done rather well.
Have I missed anyone else?
 
Went to Ballygo in 64 and Left in 69.
Can anyone remember these pupils, some started off in "1P" in 1964, others were dispersed to G1 the majority stayed in G2 I can't remember if there was a G3 and I think there were H classes.

Face flashed through my mind, dug deep to put a name to it, I managed Magill. Emailed Drew Harris, John Hamilton & Bill Donald for help with the first name. Bill Donald came back with Leslie within a couple of hours. Leslie if you read this give us a post, well done Bill especially as you are upside down!

Hows that for memory can you fill in the --- or can you add names to the list.
 *Fathers Day 02 walked into an olde worlde Inn in Essex for a Sunday Lunch, bumped into Beef McComb, small world.
Thanks to Joyce (McCullough)Brown in Australia for correcting me with Ducks surname.
Thanks to Drew Harris for filling in the Christian names of David McLaughlin & Bill Taggart
Thanks to John Hamilton in Canada who remembered Wesley Sterling.
Jacky Graham's name came to surface when John Hamilton, John Nicholl and myself met up in Belfast for the first time in nearly 33 years. We had lunch, a few drinks and a good old trip down memory lane.
09 Nov 02 Chatting with Beef McComb and we came up with the name Sammy Millar who used to live in Argyle St and went to School with us, come on Sammy drop us a line.
In the same year was Tom Finney who later went on to play for N Ireland. I used coach a Jewson Premier league side, Maldon Town FC, and I met Tom When we played Cambridge City In the FA Cup a couple of years ago. Tom lives in cambridge, now drives for a living and was on Cambridge City's coaching staff.
