Hello Asprin

Welcome to the forum, I'm sure that if we had any members that attended St Chads School in Brearley Street during the years that you mention they will contact you. Unfortunately it was the wrong side of town and a little late for myself.

Lyn

Knowing what problems you have posting photos to this forum, I'll post a larger copy of St Chads School Brearley Street in 1983 for you,

I used to spend a lot of time not to far from Park lane. We had premises in Albert rd I believe there is a school there now.

Hi yes I attended Brierley st school in the 1960s I remember Mr.Begley, sister Ethna and sister Veronica and in most cases the cruelty of sister Ethna, I often wondered what had happend to her. The main focus as you will know was on religion, I left there in 1967/1968.

Hi, nice to hear from you I seem to remember a Micheal Coppage he wasn't in my class I think he was a year above. In the year I left (1968) we were being taught by sister Veronica which wasn't pleasant, I remember a girl in our class plucked her eyebrows so sister Ethna made her sit in the hall outside the classroom until her eyebrows grew back.  Do you remember how you were not allowed to put your hand on the bannister when you walked up or down the stairs and if they caught you you could get caned 

When you speak to anyone about the way we were taught at St Chads they can't beleive it it's like we attended school in the 1930s.
