Didn't realise there was so many of us from Moorhead on here so I thought i would start a thread off to share teacher stories and reminis lol! Already been a few teachers mentioned so we will see who else we can add to our own Moorhead Hall of Fame!

Re: Moorhead High School

Among my particular favourites were John Bolton {english** who sadly died a few years ago;he was massively enthusiastic and really brought the text alive.Also Bill Green and Tony Robinson [history] again both really got into their subject and also got special dispensation for me to go on a school trip to a Test match when it was strictly "boys only"!!! I think the told Mrs Jones it was educational because I was the team scorer or some other such flannel!

LOL!! Mr. Green and Mr. Robinson they were good teachers, but you've got to admit they were easily led. The lads udsed to mention cricket on purpose so that we could miss half the lesson while they nattered lol!!

Re: Moorhead High School

My days at Moorhead are so long ago that it wasn't even called Moorhead then and the teachers I had would have been long gone by the time you got there. It was all girls in those days and the male teachers always seemed to be cringeing with embarrassment over something or other. Mr. Mortimer (science - mainly chemistry) used to blush right round the back of his neck and ears.

I can still hear Mr. Duckworth (science again) saying those infamous words "Don't forget to put a rubber bung in it."

Re: Moorhead High School

Maybe he taught at the Grammar school which was boys only when the High School (Moorhead's name back then)was girls only. That was out on Blackburn Rd near The Miners.
