Memories Of The 1950's - a Memory of Noak Hill.
I was at this school all through the 50s and celebrated the Queens Coronation at the school. All the girls wore a little paper crown on the group photograph that was taken. I had happy memories of my time there and keep in touch with one of the girls I went to school with and now we are in our 60s. I have vivid memories of two old gentlemen coming to the school and they must be long dead now but it seems that they had been pupils of this school and were going down memory lane at the time. We all crossed the road after our midday meal and played in the field opposite, the farmer allowed the school to do this, the farm a dairy farm was right next door. Happy times. The vicar use to come to the school and church on a motorbike, wearing an old fashioned helmet and he was a jolly fat man and always stopped to have a chat.
