  • Catherine Clay (Taylor), we were in the same class at St Philips! I remember you and your family well. Other friends in our class included Helen Stenson and Bridie Callaghan. I remember going to Brownies in the school hall, and we had a lovely class teacher Mrs Kemp when we were all about 10 in 1974 – did a lot of music and craft projects with her I recall, and she also did guitar lessons.
    I moved away from Mansfield in 1975, but many happy memories of those primary school days.

  • I think the boy 4th child away from Mr Lee the Head Teacher is my brother Peter Taylor, who was a friend of Peter Ball. I also remember Paul Fisher as I was in the same class as his youngest brother Patrick. I remember Julian Smith as his mum was a dinner lady at St Philips and lived next door to my Grandma on Kaye Rd.
    We lived on Bancroft Lane. I was born in 1964 and also went to St Philip’s. In my first class I remember the rocking horse and I remember Sister Assumpta, Sister Philomena and Mr Lee. The dining hall where the picture was taken was used on a Monday evening for Brownies.

  • Sister Mary Phillamena was also at St Philip Neri. Sister Mary Peter was Deputy Head at St Bedes, she was quite nice (if you were in her drama group)!

  • I think I may have been in the following year class, I recognise some of the names and vaguely their faces. My name was Sharon Phelan

  • I remember sister Assumpta. She was lovely. But I also remember being very scared of Sister Mary Peter. Very strict! Mr Lee was the Headmaster at St Phillips when I was there. And Mr Grey at St Bedes. We were the Egginton family.

  • I was at St Philips from 1969 onwards. I think the nun in the picture is Sister Assumpta. The story I remember is that she later changed her name to Sister Anne.

  • I believe the nun in the photograph is Sister Assumpta who taught the upper stream in the 4th year.
