Marton - a Memory of Whitegate.

I attended Marton between 1961-1965. I am a catholic, so we went to church by car, as there was only a few of us. I remember the long walks on Sunday afternoon. The pictures on a friday night, girls on one side, boys on the other, with teachers sitting at the back. The Saturday night hop, all old fashioned dancing. I was in the netball team, dancing team, I did high jump and long jump. They were the best years of my life. Headmaster, Mr Waite, a great big man. I was in Coquet Dorm. My name was Ann Smith.
