School Days

I started in St Bernadettes as it was called in those days. 1952 It was on the loaning. I lived in Dechmont Ave, or Decky as we called it. I then moved to Park Street school till the new St. Bernadettes opened then in 1958 went to St Josephs main building for 1st year. Then 2nd year in annexe on Merry Street. Back to main building for 3rd year. A lot of moving about. Bernadette Mannion
