    Other teachers included Mr (Joe) Green, English and Art, Mr (Jack) Horne, Science, Mr Shaw, History, Mr Richards, Mr Prescott, both English, Mr Whalley Music, Mr (Archie) Rawlins (was he the WW1 veteran mentioned in this post?) he retired in 1952. Mr Finlay retired in 1953, and they named a house after him. I was in the 52-57 class, pupils I recall from the 51-56 era include Nelson, Owen, Glascott and Cornmell.
    There was a bombed church behind the school up to 1953, when it was demolished to make way for the playground during the summer holiday. Dinner was served at Chalmers Hall, on Westminster Rd, next to which was a chipshop where the owner had a St Bernard dog.

    I remember Mr Bradshaw sticking his tongue into his cheek whenever he produced a witticism. Mr Dunne was quite young, almost baby-faced, despite the bald head, I think he must have been well qualified. I remember him as a kindly man who over-ruled a Bradshaw decision and allowed me a day's absence to go on an outing with my former school. Bradshaw, in Dunne's absence refused point blank. Fortunately for me the secretary informed Dunne on his return, and I got my day out in Southport.

    Hello, Brian Okie here. I just joined today. I am one of the Walton Tech boys from Carisbrooke Road. I usually attend the Class Reunion once or twice a year held at the Adelphi Hotel. People who do remember me often quote the fact that I often brought my dad's accordion in and played it, also that my pal Chris S. and I usually performed last night's Goon Show (and did all the voices too!) I was caned many times for laughing in lessons. Chris S and I were noted for not taking part in sports and we preferred to talk about Western films and especially Lee Van Cleef!

    Brian Okie and C Smith did indeed treat us to the latest new craze Goon Show the day after broadcast.
    As stated before the 52-57 lads meet regularly. I would recommend other years to get together before it's too late, 4 of our lads have passed away since our first meeting in 2002.
    Incidentally, a 53-58 lad who made it good was Kevin Dooley, lawyer to many Liverpool FC stars. He died some years ago, with many of his famous clients mourning at his funeral.
