Volney was my mum's cousin - the name is of French origin and comes through from my Great-grandfather's brother's second wife, Blanche who was French...

Re: Rhyddings High School??

Yeh me too only just seen the post...My brother Donald was there from 1954-58...I was there 1964-69 and my nephew Jason was there 1979-84......The English teacher Mr Eric Smith taught all three of us...others I remember...Mr Ogilvy (Music), Mr Barnes (History I think) and Mrs Barnes(history), Mr Howland (woodwork), Mr Eland (Metalwork) Mr Abbott (Physics) Mr Gibson(Geography) Mr Kerr & Mr Waterhouse(Maths) Mr Downs (Chemistry) Mr Cunliffe (PE)and Mr Smith (English) mr Marsden and Mrs Merrigold.

Forget who taught RE, Art, Tech Drawing and History in the 5th year.

I remember the first year classes were at Moorhead Junior school, Then I spent the second year at Haworth st and the 4th and 5th years at the Tech on Union Rd.

I remember when I left it seemed like just another day and we all just went home. Nowadays there seems to be partys, prom nights, last day seems to be a free for all with everyone painting each other and all sorts going on.....Did I miss out somewhere??

Anyone got photos of the 64-69 era.....

Phil
