Hi Sarah.
I think I sent you a personal reply to your fab list of girls in our class. I can't find it and haven't had a reply so any chance of letting me know if you got my reply to your message.
Thanks
Robina

To anyone who comes back in here or any new posts I just want to apologise for my absence but I'm still rather lost after the passing of my beautiful wife of 50 years and as such I find it hard to socialise even in here 💔💔

I'll take this opportunity to wish ALL who have shared this thread a Very Happy Christmas and A Safe & Healthy 2018 Year please take care hugs and handshakes and prayers to anyone who needs them 😘😘

Hi Sam Heazly ,I went to Everton then Wheatfield then back to Everton and was in the same class as you Bertie Sharkie and Brian Barnes.Brian was Mr Barnes son and travelled with him each day from Dunadry. One day they both arrived very late and Brian had his arm in a sling, he had fallen out of the back of the car when his dad was going round a corner. My name is George Toole and  I have recently been in touch with Jim Todd also from our class. I left in September 1962.I have not posted before as I have just found this thread.

Hi all, just found the site after speaking to George Toole.
I attended Everton from 1958 to 1962 approx and recall a lot of the names mentioned.
School people teachers were Mr Keers ,headmasters. Mr Barnes vice principal.
Mr Gibson English and drama. Mr Cathcart ,who swung round his door in the corridor , maths. Miss McCoullough ( ginger hair )music. Mr Findlay the sadistic PE teacher. Mr Redpath did not teach us but took us to play cricket at Woodvale cricket club. I donít remember the Domestic Science teacher name except she was georgeus and did the first aid patching me up on a number of occasions . We also had a very pretty petite French teacher but canít remember her name.
My mates at the time were George Toole, John McKeag, Alex Heffernan, Brian Barnes the VPs son. I also recall Bertie Sharkie. There were a number of girls we were friendly with but the only name I can recall was Maureen Heslip.
I Have not lived in Belfast for some 45 years now and was great recently to meet up with George  and John We are all getting on a bit now but it would be great to hear from any of my old friends or associate pupils of the time.

Hi George, I have not had any responders yet to my blog but I see Bertie Sharkie has responded to you. He was definitely in our class and would like to hear from him.
The problem seems to be the blog is in different places and I found it again under Belfast blog and a big list of other inquiries.
Still havenít heard from Brian Murdock, hope he is well.
Back next week from Tenerife and will call.

Hi Jim, I sent Brian Murdock an old photo from his motor bike years. He replied and is well but leaving oz next year as his wife has got a job in England for 2 years. Bertie Sharky doesn't think he was in our class, really strange as we both remember him. Catch up when you come home. Geordie

Hello to you all,especially those of you who know me and/or were in the same class as me at Everton.Maybe I have been having a few senior moments and had forgotten you all. George Toole,did you live in Glenbank Place at the corner of Legann Street? I lived in number 8 after the family moved up from one of the mills houses in Harmony. I went to St.Marks and then to Everton.To be honest I can't remember too many of my classmates there. Maybe you can.

Hi,It's me again. After some thought I do remember George Toole. Sorry I was getting you mixed up with Roy George and he is the one who lived in Glenbank Place. But I would still like to get in touch with any of my old classmates from Everton and St.Marks.

Hi George, I got a message from Bertie Sharkie but I find this blog hard to work with.
I see a lot of posts from ex Everton 59/64 but not many I recognise or recognise me despite knowing all the teachers of the period.
Bertie is in Canada and would like to make contact as I would with any old mates/ girl friends. Will call yo.

Hi Rob... The bloke in the front row on the right was Robert Blevings. Do you remember Robert?

Let's see if this works    Time for a wee laugh at my expense  ;) if this photo gets posted here then it will show my School Photo of 1954 at Wheatfield School during the period we were all sent up there while Everton had some work done to it and the "DORK" five in from the top row is me  ??? LOL

Cheers ALL,

Rob

Hello ALL in Belfast Forum,

I'm just wondering if any folks out there went to Everton Primary which then became Everton Secondary and I believe afterwards it became a Girls only school ?  I'm talking about back in the 50's as I left there in 1957 as a 14yr old and started my first job as a grocery home delivery boy for a grocery store which was up the top end of Woodville Parade.

Some teacher names I recall back then were :  Mr. Cathcart ( I think he was our Religion Teacher ) and Miss Fanny Freeburn ( I think she was our English Teacher ) and Mr. Barnes ( who I know was our Maths Teacher ). Sorry but my wee old grey cells are burning out fast but I also remember when Everton was having some renovations done we were ALL sent up to Wheatfield School.

Anyhow, I would be thrilled if anyone of that era could add anything to this thread :)

Thanks and Cheers,
Rob

[
George, have had another contact with Bertie Sharkie, and he has reminded me of another Boy Billy Bryanís who lived in Enfield st Woodvale.
I am surprised we have have no other responses from other boys and girls who attended same time as us. Bertie is coming to England in October and perhaps we can arrange some sort of reunion if we had more responses. They canít all be dead!
There seems to be people on the blog who were ex wheatfield but I would have been the only one from Peters hill at the bottom of Shankill, ex Browns Sq school. But perhaps we will hear from a few others.
