Old School - a Memory of Belfast.

I went to help with the cubs and scouts while at the teacher training college with Alfie Johnston and Freda Musson (later Freda Johnston). Frank Denmark was the headteacher. He had served in the war and lost a leg. Though he had a false one fitted, it was not very comfortable and often he could be seen moving about on cructhes. The interior of the school was in poor condition and a new school was opened at Jordanstown, Newtownabbey 1963. I went there to teach blind children and remained there until 1981 when I became principal of Longstone School for slow learners at Dundonald.
