I went to Sydenham girls with Angela Smith, Pat Metcher, Paulette Savage, Janis Brush, Pearl Harkens! I remember Ms.Wright, she was a real tyrant with red nails & pearlescent high heels & used to give me detention for wearing nail polish!My English teacher was Miss Garood and she was lovely! I used to try and bunk off at lunchtime to go riding on my boyfriend Ken s lambretta & pop in the "crit"(criterion) for an ice cream or milkshake! Rose Merrifield

I went to Sydenham County Girls school and left at 15 in 1963. Someone made a comment about Terry Maidment -that rang a bell, as my sister, Janet, used to go out with him for a while. I knew Brian Jacks very well - and did anyone know Ronnie McKay, Penny Hackman and Gwyn Tanner? Would love to catch up. I lived bang opposite Sydenham School, my then name Doreen Mahony and my sister was Janet. Would be great if I got an answer.
