My name is John Rutland and I started school in the infants section of the secondary modern building in Ham 1. In 1950 the class walked across Ham Woods to the brand new school in Jedburgh Crescent that was South Trelawny Primary School. The headmistress at the time was Ms Hocking. We had a separate playground for the infants and I think the school had a proper stage where we enacted the Nativity plays at Christmas. I joined the Junior School in 1951 and the teacher was a Miss Roberts and the headmistress was Ms Kent, a kindly lady who read us Tom and the Water babies at school dinner times. I left in 1952 and I believe the educational grounding I received from the teaching staff served me well through my working life. I am now 76 years old and still have all my reports whilst at this school.
I lived in Malmesbury Close when everything was new and still have fond memories of living there and going to school at South Trelawny..
