Wasn't it great at St Bernard's, 23 March 2019? Lovely homily by Father. Everyone was so pleased to see everyone who came. We are hoping for the same time, same place 2020, 149 years since the school was established in 1871. If it goes ahead, the Mass will be Saturday, 21 March 2019. The year 2021 will be a jubilee year of 150 years 1871 - 2021. We didn't get the music for the school hymn but our girls sang it acapella, and very nicely too!

Keep the Faith

I was at St Joseph's 1958-1964. I have been to the  reunions At St Margaret Mary's in Moston organised by Christine Hession. I am still in contact with a few others from  my year. I am hoping to go to the mass on Saturday i'm not expecting to know anyone!!. I was Pat Gleaves.


Hello Hopeful, I wonder if our paths crossed during that time though I might have been a year ahead of you I started in 1957 and left in 1964. My name is Pat Neild and I played netball and rounders primarily with Margaret Spooner and Mary Verity. I live in Oz so am a long way form reunions . hope I hear back form anyonw who may remember me   :smitten:

Hi Maggi
I remember Miss Verity, or was it Mrs. Verity.  She used to be Miss Spooner and then married, and her name changed to Verity, can't remember whether she used Miss or Mrs.  Do you remember those horrible old fashioned bottle green shorts we had to wear for PE.
I remember Mrs. O'Reilly.
Was you told about the ghost story in the attic of the Domestic Science Rooms?

Hi Estar  It's a while since you posted htis but I have only just found the forum soI hope you are still contributing .You sound as though you may have been around during my years at Joeys. All the teac hers were my teachers. Some of the girls I was with were Eileen Mulryan,Colette Harding, Anne Griffin, Frances Rocca,  the Clarke sisters and a few more.  Im not sure if I can post pictures to the page but I do have some if anyone is interested in them. Look forwar to any replies if these names ring a bell and my name is Pat neild and I had a sister Barbara in the school 3 years behind me.

Does anyone remember Jane Mullen? She was a neighbour of mine on North Road Longsight, she went there probably between 1974 and 1978?
Thanks

Yes, but that would be one big corral, Sam.

Maybe it was an early WPA project?

Hiya Maggi
I remember Mrs. Morrison the music teacher - she was a fantastic teacher. I loved her lessons and went to the Free Trade Hall on two occasions with her to see The Vienna Boys Choir and then a performance with Sir John Barbirolli - anyone remember that?
I remember Miss Verity too PE teacher, think she also taught Biology? But not 100% on that.

I remember a teacher called Mrs Griffin - Maths? Also Mr. Champion and playing with Mercury on the desk - it formed little baubles and we rolled them around - doesn't bear thinking about now, but I survived :)

I was in Truth house, a little white badge. I always seemed to be in trouble at the house meetings. Think we had to stand up and announce why we'd got some sort of card for doing something wrong - can't remember what they were called. Remember Sharon Smith Anne Edwards Una Marrinan (my memory of her name) Danker Niyjoo (wrong spelling)

Also still got my Handmaids badge etc......Mrs Coffey English teacher has just come to mind and so many more memories. I was there from Sept. '69 to Easter '71 when we moved to Blackpool. I loved every minute at St. Joes. It's lovely to read all the message, brings back lots of good memories. What a shame the school had to close. Anyway enough waffle from me. Take care everyone x

I went to St Joseph's from 1963 to 1968. I think I was in Honour House. I remember we had a yellow badge. I also remember the folk dancing competitions we had. My class once did a Japanese dance and we all wore kimonos and did a lot of bowing to each other and kneeling down.


I can't remember very many of the teachers but I do remember Miss Verity who taught PE and Sister Louise who taught us in the library. I think I had Sister Mary for Domestic Science. I can remember making a lemon meringue pie which I managed to burn. I think she also taught needlework and I can vaguely recall making a gingham apron. I certainly remember her teaching us how to iron a man's shirt!


I don't remember very many of the pupils there, but I was friendly with someone called Angela Jones. Also Patricia Paine and Valerie Ringland. There was a girl with lovely blonde ringlets called Collette Turner-Bishop. I don't think I ever spoke to her but I was fascinated by her name. I remember her reciting a poem which began, 'I know a little cupboard with a key, key, key.....' and then something about sweeties 'for me, me, me' - for some competition or another...!


Actually, now that I've started thinking about it, I remember a few other things too. I was in the choir and the BBC came and recorded us singing a full mass. It really was beautiful and they made a record which was available to buy. Unfortunately my father was very hard up and couldn't afford to buy it.

HI BEATLES FAN My name was Yvette Allen and we must have been in the same class as I remember the names of the girls you mention especially the Polish names There was another girl as well Bizena Fadorak I was also a dancer in the Japanese folk dance festival The music we danced to was the flip side of the record Teatime in Tokyo. I too really loved Sister Louise for library and remember Ms Verity firbOE Do you remember a Marie Hogan? My house name was "Truth" a white badge and I used to hate our house meetings especially when you had to stand up in frontbof everyone if you had any marks against you

In case you still needed the lyrics to the school hymn (unfortunately don’t have the music).


We give to God our hymns of praise.
To Mary’s Son our hearts we raise.
And to the Holy Spirit blest
We consecrate our toil and rest
We pray the Queen of Heaven above
For gifts of joy and peace and love
Our patron saint we supplication
To guide our steps to Heaven’s gate.


Oh great St Joseph hear our prayer
Our daily progress make thy care
We chose thee for our constant guide
Our souls to thee we now confide
Where’re God leads us on life’s way
Thou art our patron, this we pray
Obtain for us the courage true
To “Keep the Faith” our whole lives through.
