  • That’s me (Janet Carden), third in from the right as you look, in the third row (next to Sandra Field). I’m in the dark dress with squares and circles on. Julie-Ann Grigg is next to me and Karen Hope is next to her. Then there’s Julia Dunk on the opposite end of the row (blonde hair).

    Beryl Simmonds is in the back row, second in from the right as you look and Susan Bates second from the left in the back row.

    David Donno is third from the left on the second row. He’s the boy with lighter hair. Trevor Carter is to the left of him, wearing the tie.

    If I remember anymore, I’ll post them.

  • 2nd row from front ,5th from left is my sister Jennifer Kelly. We had moved from Halifax to Brighton but were only there 3 years and we moved back to Halifax.
    I was younger than Jennifer and was in Miss Jenks’ class , I don’t remember names of previous 2 teachers.
    My good friends were Julie Gunn and Jane Ginn.

  • There is nothing here to say what school it is, but a friend was at a school with a Miss Jenks[as above] and recalls her stating-‘All children are brats’… memorable! Was it Elm Grove?

  • The school is The Downs Junior and Infant school, Ditchling Road.
    We lived on Vere Road at the time I was there.
    Miss Jenks I recall , was a good teacher and I do not remember her saying “All children are brats”, but that is not to say she never said it ! Jenks is not a common name is it ? Idon’t know how long she stayed at the Downs after I left in 1966. She did visit me when she was visiting relatives in Halifax a few years later.
