St Andrew's School

Julia Stainer

Hello Julia

I have lost two entries through distractions here at home and will immediately give you my email address for a response from you as a more immediate  direct reply, should you read this entry.

Other contributors  are also welcome to use this email address too.

John Grimmer sent in a photo of my class at St Andrew's school.

Julia, I am in the second row, second in from left. I lived at 8 St Nicholas Road. Next door to our fish and chip shop. I do remember you from your hair! Big and blonde.

Are you able to scan any photos to me please? Or can I pay for some copies of the Priory.  My Sister Linda Colby also went to the Priory Girl's School and recalls there was a separate Priory Boy's  next door.

Miss  Douse was our Headmistress - a formidable woman with a pointed nose. Her nephew wrote in on this site and confused me by calling her Miss   Rouse. Maybe a typo as another contributor also referred to her as Miss  Douse which confirmed my recall.

Hope to hear from you and others by email. Thanks to John Grimmer  for sending in that photo.  By the way, I did not have Mrs Bishop standing over me. I ate everything in sight. Always starving.
