    Cool Roscommon St School and St. Peters, Sackville St, Everton area.

    Anyone help me obtain pictures of these schools during the 1950's? I lived next to Rossy school at 79-81 Roscommon St and the back of our house led onto St Peters school which I attended in the 50's. Any help would be much appreciated. Regards to Ged, ItsaZappathing and others, just waking from my hibernation.

    Hello Chasevens.

    I went to both of those schools and during the 50's.

    Mr Grimshaw headmaster at Sackville St. Mr Walker one of the teachers who tought me.

    Roscommon St, headmaster Bothom, teachers, Hughes, (Woodwork) Bozie, (Woodwork also tought the lads boxing)
    Williams, (Music) Other teachers , Jack Lyons, Fred Tunstall, who went on to become the headmaster at Colomendy.
    I will post some pictures of both schools as soon as possible.

    Cheers!

    Hi Samp,
    Great to hear from and thanks for the early response. I went to St Peters but the headmaster at that time was Mr Stokes. I left in 1960 and my final form teacher was Mr Bookless. Mr Platt was the school caretaker and he lived a few houses down in Sackville St. My elder brother, Les Evans, went to Rossy, also my younger brother Ron but I went on to the Collegiate. I do recall Les recounting his experience of Bozie. Looking forward to seeing the pics,
    Regards,
    Chas

    Hello Chas, I remember Mr Stokes did take over from Grimshaw and I remember Mr Platt the caretaker, dont remember Bookless.
    I left Rossy in 1956. Did you ever go to the Shewsy club?

    Cool Shewsy

    Hi Samp, I was in touch with Mr Bookless's wife recently and she let me know he had died. She told me a little of his history and he'd been a prisoner of war held by the Japanese but he never brought any of this out in his lessons. A very quiet and calm man is how I remember him.
    I did go to the Shewsy, a great boys club. I played billiards and eventually played snooker upstairs. It kept us off the streets and was well run. I still think of the thick hot buttered toast which you could buy there for a penny a slice. I'm sure you know that I'm talking about when a pound was worth 240 pence. I'm 61 this year, how old are you?
    Speak to you soon,
    Chas
