They would have been my age but we were all on home leave in 1953 so I don't have photos of me in QBS until 1954  laugh

I'm pretty sure the girl sitting crossed legged in the front, 2nd from left, is Cathy Ferrier.  There are other faces which looks so familiar but I can't put names to them, sorry.  

 

Not sure this photo is the old school. I don't remember the outside steps on the left of the photo. Unless they were around the back where we weren't supposed to play.

A picture of my classmates taken in Nov 1957 after a sports day - I'm sure there are faces which are the same as the 1953 photo, but just a tad older laugh

Hi 


My mum is Cathy Ferrier and that is certainly a photo of her! She now lives in Australia. 

She would love to know who posted the comment and who posted the photo!

Will endeavour to get her set up on the site so she can make comments etc. 

Thanks

James Plowman

Hi James
Please tell your mother that Nona Parks posted the photo - I hope she'll remember me smiley

I don't know if she's on Facebook but I'm in touch with Bunny Smith and Anne Luddington is also there, if she'd like to join us!  I am Nona Pio-Ulski Langley on FB.

Cheers

Nona

Baldwin, first name escapes me! and Jennifer Watts is 2nd from Right in front row. Does anyone remember the teachers name, she was very nice I recall. If my memory serves me correctly, hum!,I remember those steps,  the crates of warm milk at recess were always  placed at the bottom of them!  I've disliked milk ever since!    

QBS Nov 1957 Sports Day photo I recognise Mary Nurse, Terrance Beasley, Ann Gregory & Alan Sloan already identified .Is Anne Luddington in any of the photos?  Anne's parents were good friends of my parents & I vividly recall her father owning a Morris Transport ( early model of a stationwagon) car with wooden panels , I loved going for drives in the NT with them, it was very grand!

Cheers Cathy.

 

 

 

Hi Cathy

Sorry for any confusion but I wasn't in the 1953 photo, which was posted by the Brooks family. We were on leave in 1953 so I didn't come to QBS until December of that year.

Here is a photo of another sports day - 1956 - and I am the one (on the left) with her arm raised, bellowing for Caesar to win whatever race we were watching laugh

The others there were L-R : Glynis ?, Deidre Mahon (standing on the bar), Cecilia ? and Anne Luddington.  Not sure if that was Sandy next to her!!

Hello Nona,

My brain has been in overload ever since our son James got back from Easter in HK with this wealth of HK photos , history & memories on this web site. I miss read most likely nearly square eyed from the screen! Thanks for the photo of Anne, would love to get in touch with her, afraid I'm not on Facebook. Do give her my fond regards! Cheers Cathy.
