St James school

This picture was published in the Lynn News on 26th May 1936. It shows a party of St James Senior Girls, with Miss Kate Sherman,
Miss D Freeman and Miss L Bunkle. Also the Lynn Mayor, Mr J.W.Raby.

A lovely photo Miv. :D

This is St James girls c1930, I haven't got a lot of info about the photo only that the girl in the middle at the front is Edna Thomas.
She is holding a sign I can't quite make out, but looks like 'Please support - - - - Hospital ----'.
Must have been springtime as they are all holding daffodils.

Yes Miv, the info I have is that it is now the Eastgate school.

Edna had a camera and took it on a couple of outings as part of her school work.

Wish I could date this photo more accurately, c1934

Anyone help with names? I think they are all staff and senior pupils. I don't know what the occasion was but they are all
dressed up.

ST JAMES SENIOR GIRLS.

Postby rospaul » 01 Feb 2008, 16:16

In the last photograph the young lady second in from the left is my late Mother-in-Law Gladys Maud George b1917
(married name OLIVER), known to all as "Teddie". Her parents had a Pork Butchers shop on the corner of Church St & Nelson St.
Could this picture be of the first St James Old Girls Reunion?? the date of 1934 is about right
On the front row Miss Sherman was the Headmistress and Mr Catleugh the Head Govenor of the school.

Two more photographs of the old St James Girls School, these are some of the elementary pupils from 1927.
The first must be Harvest festaval of that year.
the other is the presentation of the Kings Lynn Schools Sports Shield, my late Mother in-law is on the front row on the far right.

About 1957 at St. James Infants School (now Eastgate), part of the Christmas program was the Nativity Play where I debuted on the stage as Mary and Joseph was Trevor someone - lovely boy with black hair and very dark eyes. One of the kings is on the left but I'm sure my mother did not buy any other views except this one. Anyone have others? The photo was taken by Goodchild's.
The hall was packed and my mother, Winnie Spooner and her best friend, Edna Ballard stood in the back and cried -- I was so very serious! Miss or Mrs. Oliver was the Headmistress and some of the teachers during my era in the infants were: Miss Bambridge, Miss Dekyzer (sp?), and Mrs. Young. There was another one but she was very young and didn't stay very long - not good memories of her.
