Hi Liz yes I do remember the conductors hanging around I think they made their runs quicker so they could have a fag while waiting for right time to get back on LOL  :D .  I don't recall the shoe menders but there was a wee barber's shop and the man who ran it was the Da of one of the boys I went to Everton with and he took over from his Da after he retired.  I don't know how long he went on running the barbers ?

Cheers, Rob

Hi Evertonians! I left in 1967 - Everton was a girls only school by then, and Gladys Richardson was the Headmistress..a.k.a. 'Auntie Glad'! Miss Hall of the grey streak in her hair, not to be messed with..lol..she kicked me out of cookery class for the rest of a term because I refused to handle liver... :o . Ahhh, Mrs Jordan - she taught French and was a dragon, but she also taught History and was a different person - she used to sit on the front desk, put her feet on the seat and just teach history like one big story. Rob I don't know if Mr. Redpath had an MGB, but when I was there he drove a Citroen - very exotic  :)  Also, the rumour going about when I was there was that old Mr. Cathcart, not Mr. Barnes, had a 'plate in his head'..whatever that meant! Does anyone remember Mr. Gibson, who taught English? A lovely gentleman. And oh yes...the navy knickers in first year and the mauve pleated gym skirts from then on. .awful!!  :D
Hi Liz17,The music teacher was Miss McCullough. Don"t know if I got the spelling right! Rob,Mr Cathwright taught Maths.I left Everton in 62 . I loved school and had a wee cry the day I left.I remember Miss Hall was the cookery teacher and there was Mr Smith who taught Geography, Mr Redpath,Miss Morrow,Miss Grant who became Mrs Jordon when she married,she was the worst teacher !! Always kept me in after school for one thing or another !I hated gym days having to wear those horrible navy blue knickers out on the playing fields with all the boys having a good geek at us !!!  Mr Keers was the Head Master! Anyone remember his secretary"s name?  Small blond and had a big bust :o  Nella..

Hello Altoni!   When I left in 1967 I was in sixth form...there were only 7 of us, and I think we were the first class to sit GCEs at Everton. You've reminded me of Miss Turkington and Miss Dinnen, but I can't recall Miss Ferguson. I remember that there were 4 houses, but I can't remember mine.. :( ...doesn't seem like 45 years! :o :)

I left in 1969. Miss Ferguson taught maths then she was replaced with Mr Whitton. Mrs Doolan taught french, she drove a green mini. The houses were Curie (blue) Nightingale (red) Austin (green) Victoria (yellow)  Mrs McClean was my form teacher.  Do you remember Mrs Campbell who taught history.

Hi Moteddi, Altoni and asp1 so great to see more Evertonians the pity is I left before it became ALL GIRLS as I think I would have enjoyed that  :P  But then again I don't think I would have got away with wearing navy nickers and thoses uniforms  :D

It's lovely to see so many of you join in and share memories of the old school and I thank you ALL for stopping in and Moteddi I was sure it was Mr. Barnes that had that plate as my sister went to Everton as well and he was her Maths teacher and it appears he got wounded in the war and had to have a metal plate put in his head to protect his brain from fragments of bone from the wound ???

Cheers ALL, Rob  :-*

Hi liz17, Hope you enjoyed your walk and your so lucky to be a Granny as my wife and I are still waiting for either our 43yr old daughter or 40yr old son to even get engaged  :( it's sad isn't it but they seem to have very different idea's these days so I guess we just roll along in hope  ;)   I was only joking about that book as my daughter and her friends are right into it and from what I hear about it I gave up Playboy mags many many years ago LOL :P

Yes I did live close to Everton in fact right opposite it in Cranbrook Gardens just down from the Bus Depot then there was a wee shop then further down there was a vacant block of land with a pile of dirt on it where we use to skid down off when it snowed and down the street.

Anyways enough from me cheers, Rob
