Infant Staff 1954

Possibly the first staff photograph in the new school in 1954, can we have assistance with names?
Back row: ??, ??, ??.
Seated: Miss Elizabeth Hamilton, Miss Goldsborough, Mrs Gornall, Miss Leybourne.

Janet Wilson tells us: “The teacher seated 3rd from the left is the same one who appears in your classroom photo from the mid 50s. Mrs Gornall. The teacher seated on the far right bears a striking resemblance to Miss Leybourne who taught in the junior school when I was there in the mid 60s”. Ray Brown has advised: “If this picture was taken in 1954 I would have attended the Harry Dack School at that time – There was a Teacher by the name of Miss Fitzsimmons I think, but not a 100% sure that she could be the Lady in the middle of the back row, perhaps it may jog someone’s memory once they see the name”.

    I think that Mrs Gornall might be the lady seated on the right. She looks like my needlework teacher from the senior school.

    The young girl, third from left, front row, is Elizabeth (Betty) Hamilton from Staithes, my mother!
