Rivington Road Primary School - a Memory of St Helens.

I was curious to know if anyone remembered the school in the erly 60s- I enjoyed my time at Rivington Road- remember the bluebells near the school and love them to this day. We had a trainee teacher who really inspiredd me- even now I remeber making water clocks and dying fabric like they did in Roman times- I used onion skins and it turned the fabric yellow! We built Hadrians wall in the classroom- fabulous stuff!!!!
I remember sports days in the field and being too embarressed to remove my dresss - which was over my sports kit Id like to add so I sat there and refused to run! What a little madam eh?
The head at the time was a lovely chap called mr. Smeltzer- kind and patient but he visited the classes and tested our mental arithmetic- Oh dear- I may have been OK with history but Maths and myself were never easy bedfellows!
I didnt stay long there as we had to move to Ormskirk,- I had a lovely friend called Susan Jones- a pretty little girl with blonde hair- I went to her birthday party and remember dancing to Bits and Pieces by Dave Clark Five. I have memories af te corner shop by Cowley High School- wonder if its there still? Many happy times.
