ROWE (nee HAYES) otherwise known as Rosie!
came to Risinghill from Moreland Street School if I remember correctly
in 1960. I was in the A class until I decided to leave early in 1964
to go to the City Day College at Bunhill Row to do a secretarial course.
I was Goal Attack in the Netball team (that's me with the ball in
the School photo) and the Choir and have fond memories of the Xmas
show that we put on. I remember wearing the most wonderful head dress
made by the pupils.
Some school chums that I can recall are: Kerry McGuire, Yvonne Prince,
Beverly Austin, Sandra Broadbent, David Banks, Kevin O'Brien, Patricia
Reynolds, Linda Stockwell.
My early working life was as a secretary before settling down to marry
John and having 3 lovely children. We eventually moved out of London
to Surrey where I worked at the University as a Secretary for several
years. We now live in Dorset where I have spent the past 20 years
as a Homelessness Officer for the Local Authority. Both our sons who
have given us grandsons and our daughter, all live close by.
John and I have both retired early and we have just sold our bungalow
and bought a Motorhome and will soon be embarking on our travels to
see Scotland and then on to Europe! We could be gone for a few years!
