Sadly my memory is not what it was and I don’t remember much more than two brilliant teachers, Mrs. Robb and Miss Gobby, and a set of sport mad class mates who made my non competitive stay at Mayfield a complete misery.
The girls in my class represented all levels of netball from Form to School and to someone like me, with no interest in sport or winning anything, it was very very tiring. I did have a friend, Janet Morris. We had been together through South Park infants and junior schools. We were always together in class and at break times. We played together and buffered each other against the very competitive element present in our particular school year. After a year at Mayfield Janet passed the 13+ and went to grammar school, Beal I think, and we lost touch. Perhaps one day Janet will see ‘Mayfield Memories’ and make contact with me.
