fewkeste 8 Posted January 27, 2018 Report Share Posted January 27, 2018 Brillo, your post with details of all the teachers was excellent - you seem to know so much more about them then I ever did. I'm still in contact with Dave Croucher and Steve Newbold. I was at Claremont from '69 to '74 - if I remember correctly were you and Dave one year later than me? Zab - are you any relation to Ben Zabulis by any chance? - he was in my class during my time at Claremont. I made contact with him a few years ago when there was a school reunion at Llyods Bar in Hockley in 2003 ish. He is or was working somewhere exotic in Asia I think. All of these memories are brilliant - I also remember Eric Dibb's film club. I think when I was there, we were only at the Claremont Road site (and the Seeley Annex) for one year before being totally based at the old Forest Fields Grammar school site on Stanley Road. At the Claremont site we squeezed into his room for the after school film club to watch whatever film he had hired. Also I really used to look forward to the end of term films he'd put on. Down to Gilberts for a quarter of pineapple chunks and then to the hall to see what delights he had for us. When you think what Eric Dibb did for Claremont pupils he certainly deserves some recognition. Presumably he's no longer with us. Did he have any children does anyone know? The postings from other (older) contributors make me realise just how talented some of the Claremont teachers were. For example I never knew Mr Turner was an Oxford man (incidentally, he was on East Midlands today in the not too distant past - I can't remember why though.) Anyway, having read this thread from beginning to end it's been a great trip down memory lane - thank you to all who have contributed their memories.
