Miss Goldsbrough And Staff

Standing: Miss Sibley, Miss J Norminton, Mrs R. Ward, Miss J Long.

Seated: Mrs Gladman, Miss Goldsbrough (Head), Mrs P Hitchen.

1961/2 was Miss Long’s first year in teaching and she was only at Harry Dack for that year, afterwards became a stalwart of Loftus Junior School. It was also the final year as Head for Miss Goldsbrough, retiring 31st July 1962.

Shirley Tutton tells us: “This was my first year at school and I remember all the staff as if it was yesterday!”. Whilst Sally Abra tells us: “As a seven-year old I was mesmerised by Mrs Gladman’s high heel shoes and bright red lipstick; I aspired to be like her when I grew up. I was with Mrs Hitchen too, these photographs are brilliant so see after so long.” Janis Bonner has advised: “It is Mrs.Ward standing between Miss Norminton and Miss Long.(I think she was called Rita) She was lovely and taught the younger children. I remember her putting all our artwork into those huge scrapbooks. Mrs.Coser was indeed fair haired and wore glasses, I believe she taught the older children as did Mrs. Hitchen who I had the pleasure of meeting again a few years ago.”

Thanks to Alison Atkinson for the updated names and to Shirley and Sally for the memories. Thanks also to Janice Bonner for resolving our naming quandary.

    I wonder if the teacher standing beside Miss Long is Mrs Ward? I seem to remember her when I first started at Harry Dack, which would be 62/63. I remember Mrs Coser as fair haired and wearing glasses? My sister always kept in touch with Mrs Gladman who died only a couple of years ago.
