Fond memories of the big enamel jug of cocoa sitting on the pot belly stove in our class room in winter, milk biscuit's, apples wrapped in tissues and being chosen to ring the assembly bell.
During the polio epidemic we did correspondence work (sometimes our parents did it!)
We young ones were taken down to the suger works all attached to a long rope crocodile style,it had little loops that we had to put a finger in!
Our father also attended Birkenhead Primary, John Higham Fenton 1916 and my two brothers and sister also. My best friend Colleen Hickenbottom nee Barker also attended and still lives in Birkenhead and she keeps me up to date with all the news we are intending to catch up with old classmates in March.
Bev Stephenson nee Fenton (1943-1949)
Our Learning Trust is collecting memories from both the students and teachers who attended Birkenhead Primary School since 1919. We would love to hear from you!
