I remember Stevie Calwell working there, he lived in Manor street. The other names don't ring any bells, Jim Bowman worked there at the same time as me, the last I heard of him he was living up the Glen Rd. Speaking of big Sid teaching French, I remember him giving me 8 out of 100 in a french test but I can't remember what the 8 points were for as I handed in a blank sheet of paper with just my name on it. My French has'nt got any better since.

Jim Bowman another blast from the past, he lived on Manor St his parents had a shop. Steven Caldwell lived in Rosevale St. As I said earlier French was my best subject and i usually finished in the top few in the class. It gave me the confidence to travel through France after I left school.

Great Pics Cossie,
 
Bro Jennings wasn't the worst but could be cruel at times his favourite was to twist your ear or nip you around the hips. He was a releative of Pat Jennings the footballer. Harry Largey was great and was my form teacher during my time at school. Thats how I remember him he always seemed to have a feg in his mouth.

Have you no work to do I am waiting on a letter any wonder its overdue. You two were always thicko's anyway.  The ones I think you did not get are Rock far right and Price 4th from  right. Basil Black is the one with the Groucho Marks glasses on I remember he had us on a table Tennis Team. I beat Bro McGlade when we played the teachers, he gave me six of the best next day for nothing. I think Jimmy Flynn was your Form teacher am I right.

Hello Apalachie yes thats exactly how i remember it in 1970, this pic was in one of the Glenravel Booklets. Wee Basil, Gerry Goink and Jimmy Flynn and also Big Mossie all took science subjects when I was there. There was small gas outlets with a spout which you attached a rubber hose which attached to your Bunsen Burner on each work table, so much for health and safety in those days.
