Convent High School. Grosvenor Road. - a Memory of Wrexham.
The school was in fact three buildings. The convent itself, the house next door and the main school in Gerald? Street. There was also a large prefab type building in the grounds that housed Sister Marie Claires Business Class and the Assembly Room. My memoires are of the smell of polish in the Convent, the silence. The top two forms were in this building. The Nuns chapel was here, the only time we were allowed in was to say a prayer before we entered the school certificate exam rooms!
Memories of Sister Salome veil allying, playing Hockey on the field, near to where Aston Hall was. As we shared this field with Grove Park Boys school we were at long last allowed to wear shorts for games instead of tucking our gym slips into our large brown knickers!
Thoughts of the terrifing Miss Costello (Latin and English) and tiny Sister Oswald who would rather let you help her make 'charity sale goods' than teach you music, in her room in the Grosvenor Road building.
These lovely 'Georgian' houses are now all gone to make room for a 1960's Tax office.
