    I think this will be about 1987. This year was a year or 2 older than me and i left in 1989.

    Sharon Oglesby is second from left from Liverton Mines. Class of ’84. I think you will get a lot more information if you ask the “I went to Rosecroft” group there are regular reunions for this year, so you will see how all these people look now! Also look at “Skinningrove Bonfire” website there is a link to Ian MacDonald who was the art teacher of this period. Also sadly you will see that Rosecroft has now been demolished, though they tried to save some of the mosaic, re-situated in Skinningrove.

    lee g left in 85 . he was in my year. lee m left 86 he’s my cousin .1 year younger than me.

  • Sharon Oglesby

    I left in 1984 and haven’t changed a bit lol, lovely to see Jill Hodgson and Cheryl Stevenson who also left in 1984, it was a mixed form class so some will have left later. It’s still a bit of a shock when I visit the inlaws in Rosecroft Avenue and the old school is totally demolished. What a shame, end of an era!!
