I am 86 years old, I remember my first day at Goldbeaters school, I was 4 years old! I walked to school every day from Littlefield Road until we moved to Gervase Road. Many times it was so foggy you couldn't see your hand in front of your face. I loved school and enjoyed making many friends there, some of those friendships last over 70 years but now many have passed away. I often wonder if there could be anyone still around at my age? I recall having a crush on a boy named Keneth Haggerston, and a girl in my class who died before her 12th birthday, her name was Pat Law. At my age I was devastated. I eventually won the scholarship which entitled me to go to Copthall County School. Unfortunately my memory is slowly fading. I would love to see a picure of the school !
