My Mum Went To Halbutt Street School Near Oxlow Lane In The Early 50's. Can Anyone Remember This School ?. Thanks - a Memory of Dagenham.

Would love to find some of my mum's school friends.

I went to Halbutt School from 1951 to 1955. I lived on Valence Wood Rd near St Mary's Church and quite close to Valence Park and the swimming pool that many are mentioning. My sister also went to the same school from 1953 to 1957 her name was Margaret Allen and I was Julie Allen now Julie Green. What was your mum's name? I have now been living in Melbourne Australia for over 40 years.

I went there in 1954. I lived at 121 Valence Wood road right next to park gates and went to Youth Club at St Mary's Church where I also got married. I was Jennifer Attridge

I went to Hallbut street 1958 till Christmas1962, when I was there it was split into a boys school in one half and a girls school in the other. I lived in Verney road near Martins Corner. From September 62 until Xmas when we left, they put all the Christmas leavers in one class and called it 4X, probably the funniest three months of my young life, anyone else remember 4X?

My late aunt Cynthia Thompson went to the school in the 1950's, and my sister Glynis Mier was head girl about 1968/69. Miss Pointon was headmistress then.
