School class in Village Hall -spring 1956

School class in village Hall 1956

The infant classes were in the Village Hall until a new infant block was built in 1956. Can you name any of the children?

Nigel Schoepp is the boy in right of picture. He started school in Jan 1956 but several children in the photo started in Jan 1955 so there must have been two year groups. He can remember Wendy Bushell, John Turrell, John Ship, John Wright, Robert Amps, Trevor Hopkins, Glenn Northop, Norman Jarrod, Michael Stubbings, Susan Alexander, Jane Howard, Norman Brown, Lyn Hedges and Mary and Dot Arbon were in the class. Can anyone identify which children they are in the picture?

Ray Grainger is in the centre of the picture with a dark cardigan with pale buttons, behind another boy. Ray started school in Jan 1955 and emigrated to Australia in June 1961.
