It's funny how we all have different memories of the place. 

I remember Miss Mcgrath. Miss O'Donnell, Miss Fitzpatrick, Miss Torrence, Mrs McCullan, Miss Donnelly, (God love her she was as old a God himself) as was Miss Fitzpatrick.    Sisters Gerard,Dominic, Ania, John, Magdalene.

A few years ago my sister went up there, on a visit home, and she met Miss McGrath who i think she said was head teacher.  Her and my sister were talking and she actually remembered me by name :D

I went there in 1961 to 1964 with my cousins Celia Bannon and Margaret O'Neill also my second cousin Ann Davidson from Corporation St.    The only friend I can remember was Marie Rooney.   Did not been know my cousin Margaret Bannon went there until I read her post.    Haha

Anyone remember Miss Grimley?   Then Miss Giles who taught cooking.   She was really nice.

miss riddlestale (p.e.)?
my mother was involved in charity work with a Mrs Riddlesdale, whom she liked and who lived near us.
Her husband was a Captain on cruise ships and ocean-going liners.
Any connection do you think?
