I have read about how fantastic your students were when caught up in the terrifying events in London yesterday. Evidence of an excellent school and parents. What a credit to their community.

My father-in-law, Kevin Feeney (age 84), has asked me to post this in the hope that someone can confirm if the school song is still sung. He left as school captain in 1946, having been bombed out from Holy Family to Oldknow Rd school, Head mistress was Ms Bircher. Girls captain was Agnes Thompson. He has remembered the song in its entirety, first line is 'Our tradition is not hoary, in our history there's no glory'. Can any one help. Regards.

Could you show more,photos from the school's past? I was a pupil there 1958-1963. Do you know if Miss Prince is still alive and how to contact her?

Hello, I may be the boy who is playing the triangle shown in image 1. On completion of the 11plus my family immigrated to Australia in 1963. I remember Sean Cairns, Mark Bond and Joseph Clarke all being close friends. I recall Miss Shields, Miss Mongrew, (both left to go to Australia and I would like to know how they are) Mr Mondrell and Miss Foley. Excuse my spelling of names. If possible I would appreciate a copy of this photograph to be downloaded and sent to my email. Image 5, I remember making my first confession where the organist is playing and with our teacher Miss Foley. I was trained to be an altar boy in Latin after school and during our travel to Australia I served at Mass each day for Father Mac Gillicuddy who introduced us to his family in Sydney on our arrival. I remember being actively involved in the fundraising for the stained glass window installed in 1964 and fortunately in 1991 during the Christmas period was able to walk in and view this magnificent sight. I am a high school teacher.

Really enjoyed the chance to reminisce. I attended 'Holy Fam' 1970-1977 (going on to Holy Trinity 1977-1982). I loved every minute of my time here and remember all my teachers: Mrs Shackle, Miss Gallagher, Mrs Quigley, Miss Mangan, Miss Ramsel, Mrs Scanlon and then Miss Ramsel again in Junior 4. Mrs Curtis & Mr Devoti for Music, Mrs Griffin, Mrs Hannon and Mrs Fox the dinner ladies, Mr Murray the Headmaster, Mrs Jones nee Grogan the Deputy, Mrs Horton in the office on the top corridor. Mrs Morris nee Donoghue, Miss Dwyer and Mrs O'Donnell for netball. Remember Miss Wrigley, Mr Harvey, Mr King, Mr Twort (who I recall cut holes in his shoes?), Mr Skelton (who painted a mad 1970s mural on the back wall of the hall?) and Mrs Keane. Happy, happy times and still have my best friend!

Love the old photos. I was there about 64 to 69. I don't recognise any of the kids in the photos but another person mentioned some teacher's names I recalled. I recognise the exact location of some of the pictures and I think I recognise Miss Prince in picture 1 outside the reception classroom. Innocent days... There is holy family Facebook page which has some good pictures on it. Enjoy.

I was very impressed, with a well organised web page for an outstanding establishment. I am happy with the input used by the staff and students at the school, who in my opinion; have made this possible. I pray this kind off performance continues at the organization. Well done 'Holy Family'.

I recognise three of the lads in one of the photos (top row right) Same photo as Maurren Meehan refers to I believe. My brother Paul is back row 4th from left and on his right is Stephen Walsh and in the middle of back row immediately behind teacher is Noel Martin if I'm not mistaken.

I started my teaching career 26 years ago at the Holy Family. I was a Miss McKenna then! I loved my time there all the pupils and staff were wonderful. Mr Twort was an inspirational principal. It is obvious that the school is thriving, deservedly so.

Just wanted to let you know, much to my surprise I am in one of those old photo's. It's the group class, top right hand and I'm standing in the back row, first child on the left hand side. My name then was Maureen Meehan. Any information you can give me would be so appreciated, especially the name on the teacher. Thanking you.

What a lovely website! User friendly and very comprehensive! As a former pupil (1955-1962) I especially enjoyed your archive photographs. I'd love to see more! They brought back really lovely memories of wonderful teachers such as Miss Foley, Mrs Curtis, Mrs Nzelski (?) and MIss Filan(?). I hope you get a chance to add more. Thank you.
