Ossett Pictures - Gawthorpe Primary School: The Class of 1960/61
My thanks to Vivienne Stow of Melbourne, Australia (Vivienne Ramsden in this picture) for this picture of 11 year-old pupils in their final year at Gawthorpe Primary School before leaving for secondary school in 1960/61. Viv and me have tried to identify all the other pupils in our class, but there are a couple that we can't quite remember after all these years. If anyone with a better memory than us can identify them, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will update the list of names.
My thanks to Sue Howden (Susan France in the picture above) for getting in touch and identifying the last few unknown pupils and for several corrections to names. Thanks also to Jeremy Fisher who has also kindly been in touch during November 2013 with a few more corrections to names.
