Walworth/Mina Road: see if your name's here!

As regular readers will know, a couple of us are collecting people’s memories of English teaching at Mina Road (Walworth) School as part of a research project. Pete was a teacher at the school from 1964-71; Patrick was a pupil who left in 1969.

We’ve been lucky to get hold of some documents that contain lists of pupils who were released for things like choir practice, music lessons and athletics events. Amongst the names are some that belonged to class 2D in 1956-57 and 3R in 1957-58:
Abbott Sandra
Crump Linda
Curtis Jacqueline
Curtis Gillian
Dower Carol
Fitzgerald Eileen
Hill Brenda
Hollis Garrod
Hollis Michael
Keefe Leonard
Leonard Keith
Lewis Kenneth
Longhurst Diane
Munday Barry
Richards Derek
Vallance David
Wakeman Alice
Walker Ian

We’d like to hear from anyone on that list or anyone who was in that class. If you know anyone’s address or email and you think they wouldn’t mind your passing it on, can you please let us know?

We’re especially interested in the English teacher who took you in those two years, Mr Harold Rosen -- please let us know if you remember him, and most especially let us know if you’ve kept any work that you did for him.

We’d also like to know who taught you in years 1 and 2, and 4 and 5 (for those who stayed on).
