Grace DICKIE (now HINDER) is also on this photo. Her brother, who went to St Edward’s, Sefton Park, has her copy of it. She writes:
I went to Notre Dame, Everton Valley from the age of 5 (1943/4) until I was 17 in 1956. I also remember Miss HIXON .... although she taught in the Senior School only. I remember her because she always wore navy blue knickers in which she kept her handkerchief!
Sister Winifred gave me my love of music ... in particular singing. In 1956 I joined the Liverpool Philharmonic Choir and "switched" the neon Lights on ... the first time they had been on since the war.
One of the FURLONG sisters taught me maths and she gave me a love of that subject.
When I was in the senior school, year two, I think, Miss BENSON taught me History ... but she left to become an Air Hostess which we all thought was facinating ... she was always rather glamorous and I can remember we made a collection and gave her a present ....of perfume!
