My wife is still sorting through her Mums old photographs and thought this would be of interest to some of you of a certain age !
It's Empire Day 1954 at HIGHGATE INFANTS.

Highgate infants

Postby GordonSetterLover » 18 Jun 2015, 15:37

I've found this interesting reading and did so because it flagged up Highgate infant school and St James primary. I went to both of these but left Lynn aged 11. When at the infant school I was living in 45 George Street. Has anyone any pics of this era - 1949-1956? I was Lynda Gregory. My Mum went to St james too she was Jean Ellis.

Sorry to correct you Bill J. The Benefers lived in Birchwood Street sharing same back row as some of George Street. No 45 George was on the Rec. side.

This Picture is I think Empire Day 1951, I`m Little Boy Blue at the front. Susan Woodhouse is at the front also, Bernice Gill, Lesley Sayles, Rodney Howlett. If I can think of anymore I will post again later, in the mean time Paul Rose may be able to help.

I also attended Highgate Infant School, though a little later ....probably 1960 - 64. Miss Renault was the head teacher and we used to line up at her office once a week/month (?) to put a few pennies in a savings account opened for us at the TSB in Lynn. I loved Miss Fish, the reception class teacher. I remember at lunchtime we just put oilcloths on the desks and had our lunch in her room - didn't progress to the hall for dinner until we were in the second class at the other side of the porch. There was a very high window in Miss Fish's room looking out onto the street where the mums and grans waited for the children to come out and we were always told not to wave to them! Miss. Lawson had the classroom on the right hand side of the school as you viewed it from the road - where the almond tree was. Miss Easter was the last teacher before we went to primary school (St. James). She was much younger than the other teachers and more energetic! I remember her bouncing around the playground on a pogo stick belonging to one of her pupils! One of my classmates was Pamela Marshall - I was allowed to go home with Pamela for lunch on Christmas Party day so we could get changed into our party dresses at her house. We always had to take a plate and a spoon with our names on for party food. I also remember Catherine Robinson whose dad was a dentist, Tony Thompson, Karl Gay, Stephen Castleton. My favourite things at Highgate were morning break with a little bottle of milk and reading from the Janet & John books. One vivid memory is going to a friend's house for tea after school and being picked up by her older sister in her bubble car!! Happy, days.

I remember miss Lawson and miss Easter. I think she married and was Mrs Daisy. I went to Highgate infants and then to St James Girls before going to the High School in King Street . Left the high school in 1974.

I had MIss Lawson (if it was the same one - short dark hair with some grey, glasses and wore suits and rode a bike) at St. James'. At that time she taught next-to-the-last class (who was Miss Davison, Ollie Davison's daughter). That would have been 1961/62. She must have moved down to the Infants after that. I loved those 2 little schools and am so pleased they are still going strong. My mother even went there from about 1916-1922ish. Have no idea where she went after that but I think school leaving age was 15 then.
