Re: woodnook sec school

Hello Christine Spud.
Sorry I could not reply sooner. Have more trouble getting on this accy webb, it thinks, it is Fort Knox. Yes I remember Colin very well,and John and Stuart.Got in touch with Alf Hockett.We both live in Ontario Canada.He lives about 150 miles away from me. Alf has a farm and guest house.but he calls himself John Hockett.Last time we were in Accy I saw John Davis, he said he had cancer. Then I read he died in the observer.

I was At Woodnook from 1958 to 1963, I still have a football team photograph of the Woodnook School Football team of the 1962/63 season with your brother Roy, Pat Varley, Jack and John Duckworth among others.
Please remember me to Roy if he is still going, (of which I hope he still is).
My nickname then, as now is Taddy, (aka, Mick Hadfield), from Huncoat.
All the best, Regards, Taddy.

I was at Woodnook until 1962. Roy southern was in my Year.
Mr Gale was my form master in my second year....I do not have good memories of him he was a portly bespectacled man who liked to use the cane.

oh there are a lot of names there that bring back memories.....David Barber ( I worked with his wife Linda at QPH)...Brian Blinco was in my year too....I remember the Duckworth boys John and Jack(not related) I also remember Patrick Varley and Roy Wallace(they were considered 'bad boys' but were only up to mischief really).
I remember a lot of the Teachers. Mrs Ashcroft(music) Miss Atherton (art) Mrs Thompson (RE) Mrs Rawcliffe (Geography) Mrs Whittaker(PE) she was the wife of Jim Bowen...Mr Allen headmaster...and Scary Mr Suthers(maths) Mr Gale, Miss Croston....if I rattle the grey cells I am sure I could think of more

Mr Milton Suthers was an inspiration to any lad who was prepared to muck in and try his best to be the best under his tuition at any form of sport but woe betide you if you tried to pull a fast one on him.
As for Miss Croston, (probably straight out of teacher training school) and very attactive,also not much older than the 14/15 year old lads she was attempting to teach,who were full of testosterone; she had a hard time getting her male pupils to concentrate on their lessons shall we say.
As this is a family site I cannot express it any stronger.
Your's as always, Taddy.

Yes you are right about Miss Croston...the boys were unruly and had her in tears more than once.
She was my form teacher in the third year and the girls in her class felt very sorry for her and we collected the magnificent sum of ten shillings and sixpence and we went on the Market and bought her a fashionable bag to put her classroom notes in.
She taught English and art...in fact she did a picture of me in oils.
My sister took this back to Brisbane when we cleared Ma's house.

I went to Rhyddings but knew you lads as I lived on Rydal Close......
Robert Mitchell......
I remember we used to knock about and roamed everywhere getting up to all sorts of stuff. Roland made some ‘devices’ using his ‘chemistry skills’ and we even had a copper wire and syrup tin telephone between our back bedrooms! I remember Roland’s dog called Chum.
The weeks before bonfire neet used to be exciting as we collected tons of wood and raided each other’s developing bonfires. Train spotting also comes to mind on the bridge down Bolton Avenue...
Lots of happy times guys.

I am afraid that I have to alter the above statement to read, ( I was at Woodnook from 1958 until 1962), not 1963 as I first stated, it was only after reading Margarets post that I realised that we were both in the same class for the last two year's; thanks for reminding me Marge.
As ever, stay happy, Your's, Taddy.
