    Sorry that I cannot help with any of the missing names, but I know that this was the Grade 6 class, and so the picture must have been taken in the fall of 1953 or the spring of 1954. Wow! This sure brings me back. I’d like to see an updated list of names if anyone else fills in any of the missing names.
    Very interesting.
    Rob

    Grade 6 … Oh my ! Some of them look like babies. Stand by for a later issue featuring MINA FRASER ! Again, I don’t know the year but I’m sure Rob will. Please give Rob my email address.
    Thanks, Nancy

    I love these old school pictures. I remember Helen Keeling becsause she lived on LeBlanc road and walked me to school in kindergarten (ABC’s then). Her sister-in -law, Leora Keeling, was my teacher. I also recognize Eddie Scullin. He is a cousin of mine, once removed I think. Frankie (Duke) Dohlanty lived at thte end of Woodland Road. I recognize the names Cyril Edwards,Danny McIntosh, Robbie McDonald, Woodie Nicholson, Ray Peddle, and Steve Moore. Would like to see more of these and would also like to correspond with people that were in my class.
