Does anyone remember Veronica Gibson. She would have gone to Notre Dame High School from the age of 11 to 18. (1963-1971)

No, sorry. There was, however, a Margaret Gibson who attended ND from 1964.

Hi all- this is my first post, I was Ruth Bassham (now Forbes), and was at Notre Dame at Bignor Street, from 1959 to 1966. Re Sister Marie Therese, I was in the fifth or sixth form when she started and I always found her very approachable and a breath of fresh air, especially after the previous head, Sister Mary. When I entered the school, my sister (Frances Bassham, now Davies) was in U6 and deputy head girl. Sister Mary said to me scathingly several times ..”You’re not
very like your sister, ..are you..?” When the new science, hall and gym block was built(1964??), SMT turned the old gym into a common room for the sixth form, and on at least one occasion allowed us to host a Friday evening “disco” evening for the sixth form boys of Xaverian.
I remember Betty Rossall, knowing I was terrified of heights and determined to cure me , forcing me to walk backwards along the beam in the gym. Didn’t work!
I was in the choir for the first two years that Mrs Kirk went to Llangollen - loved that woman! I have only fairly recently got back in touch with my best friend at
N.D., Paula Holland, which is an absolute joy, and also with Veronica Whittam.
Sadly have just learned that our English teacher, Pat Sheerin, died in December.She was a great teacher. Sorry to rattle on, and if anyone was at N.D at the same time of me I’d be delighted to hear from them. Best wishes to everyone.

My wife went to Notre Dame at this time. Veronica Mary Gibson. I think she started in 1963 and left in 1971 to go to the Notre Dame teacher training college in Liverpool. She also remembers going to sing at the Eisteddfods. Do you remember her or especially do you have any photographs from that time.
Best wishes

Hello Sean. Sorry, your wife ‘s name doesn’t ring a bell with me, but as I would have been in form five when she joined the school, that’s not surprising, and sadly I have no photos. RMF.

How accepting is Notre Dame of URMs and LGBT students?

I am hesitant to apply here. Thank you

Hi all


My aunty Christine Studzinska attended Notre Dame in the 60's/70's. I believe she was quite close friends with a girl called Ann Baxter.


Sadly, my aunty passed away last November and I would love to hear of any memories you have of her or indeed if Ann is on here I would love to say hello.

Hello, Albalo
There is a Facebook closed group for old girls of ND, and I posted your enquiry on this. There were a couple of replies, all offering their condolences, and one lady said she was sorry to tell you that , sadly, Ann Baxter died around the same time as your aunt. As a result of this,another close friend of A.B and your aunt,  (again, called Ann) is very upset to hear that her two close friends have passed away, but asked her sister to put two photos on the closed group, and have given permission to pass these on to you. I don’t know the date of these, but they must be 40/50 years old and are very fuzzy. If you wish to put on your mobile number, I will text you back to find your name and email address and send them on. Hope this helps you, and I’m sorry you’ve lost your aunt, RMF
