I remember Mr Searle and Mr Thompson both very good teachers. I also remember falling off the roof where I think they kept the timber, and breaking my right wrist, so it was off up to City Hospital to get it fixed. This was 1955 or 56. This happened at Shelton St school where we had wood-working classes.

Comment's from my Mother was.... serves bloody right for climbing.

I went to Huntington from 1958 to 1962. It was an absolute crap school. My favorite teachers were Mr Bradbury (Maths), Mr Hufton (English) and Mr Keys (Music). Hunto was a really rough School in Winter when it snowed the kids wrapped snow around stones and threw them

at you in the school yard. I was in 1A to 4A and my worst subject was chemistry I was always last in a class of 36. It was taught by a Mr Mathews. This is somewhat ironic since I obtained my Ph. D. In science many many years after leaving Hunto.  I remember Mr Spungin, he took us swimming and we had History and Georaphy with him. I definitely did not like him Although I always did well in those subjects. I was glad to leave this crappy school with its outdated Gloomy buildings when I was 15

Mr Joe Spungin was one of my teachers, a gentleman well known to several of the members on here and who's Son went on to better things.
