St James And St Thomas's

A Memory of Burnt Oak

Hated St James, Sr K Smelly and the Walsh Sisters. Sr Imelda used to peer in the prefab classrooms and carry a large strap with her blue lips. St Thomas's was not so bad. I often wonder what happened to my friends there; Krystyna Idczak, Jocelyn from Malta, Catherine West ( I heard she died tragically) and Veronica from Apex Corner. I've been gone so long, I live near Phila in US and I am now Grandmother but I still think of those days and wonder where you are.
