Hello everyone

My name is Alan and I was born in Upper Gornal, what feels like a Million years ago.

I attended Robert St secondary modern school and left there at Easter 1956. I was wondering if anyone on the forum, or knows of anyone that attended the school in the years leading up to that period. I would very much like to hear from them and compare notes to the changes in our lives.

I left Gornal in 1963, when I got married and have not returned since. No doubt there have been lots of changes.

I was recently contacted by the daughter of the woodwork teacher, Mr Harding, who has kindley given me some photographs of pupils and staff of the school, which were taken during the 1950's. I have asked her permision to reproduce the images and wil post a couple here, if and when she agrees. In the mean time, I would still be interested to hear from anyone who can remember the 1950's at Robert Street Secondary school, there must be some of you still living there. :)
