    • Leonie
      Lots of those names I remember. My sister Ann Benporath was in your year I was the one before. We had 50 plus in our class…..I don’t recall ever having class photos…guess you only have your year.
      Looking forward to what comes up before the 9th November…hopefully some more photos.

    • Lynette Read Phillip Read 1955

    • So interesting to see the list of old names – from time to time even cross paths with one or two. Was fascinated to visit the Sunday Market at the school recently and see some of the changes in the grounds after so many years.
      Have mostly lived south of the river over the years, as seems to be the case with quite a few of you.

    • I also went to Palmyra in 1956 and my first teacher was Miss Moss. Also in my class was Rob Chester and Ron Marks and I remember going to the overflow class down at the old church in grade 4 I think it was with Mr Kanganas as teacher. Rob and Ron lived very local and they became mates along with the girl living opposite Ella Chester who you mention in your list. Sadly my memory, especially as I have lived in UK for 48 years, has finished such that I don’t recall many others, although many of the names in your list sound very familiar. Kind regards Russell Berryman
