So many memories of RPS – walking up Archbold Rd to school, my sisters, brother and I – seeing Miss Moore walking too – Monty the brilliant bus driver who knew where everyone got on and where to drop them off – not always at the designated bus stop which made one feel special! The warm milk in small bottles, cold if you were fortunate – marching in the playground to music piped out of the loud speaker above the steps. The boy’s dept downstairs and we upstairs – going to the mysterious boy’s dept for assemblies – Miss Ayling and Miss Goddard – Miss Jurd. Walking to Roseville Theatre for Speech Day – sports carnival up at the sports ground in Clanville Road. Bronwyn & Dick, thanks so much for organising the reunion we are looking forward to it very much

I have many treasured memories of Roseville School and still have friends from that time to this day. The friends are Georgea Griffiths, Margaret Porter, Ingrid and Virgina Little.
One memory I would love to pass on to everyone is that because I had long fair plaits, they forever had blue tips on the ends. This was because the person sitting behind me dipped them in the ink pot. Great Memories !! Sadly I can’t make the reuion because we will be in the UK at that time. Please keep me informed as I may be able to make a future happening.

Sadly I will not be able to attend as I will be on a tour to China on that date, but please keep me on the mailing list for future reunions….even if it is only a small one. Names are flooding back into the memory and I would have loved catching up with you all. Thanks Dick and Bronny for organizing this event, I just know it will be wonderful. I live in West Pymble with my husband Arthur, and have two daughters and 4 grandchildren. I am retired but now enjoy the enlarged family, doing an art course, playing tennis, skiing and lots of travel. We are very blessed. My two brothers, Ken and Ian also went to Rosie, Ken sadly died some years ago, and Ian lives in Kurwongbah in Queensland. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend of memories. Best wishes to you all.
