In my old age I have just come across this site. Would like to correspond with anybody I know that attended the school when I did, ie, 1950 - 57.

I have lived in New Zealand since 1998 and prior to that lived in Canada, 1974 - 1998. I'm a Canadian Citizen.

I don't remember a Caroline Vansverry? ... but I do remember a Katherine Vansverry.
I was at Roan Girls (Devonshire Drive) until 1982.
Now living in Perth Western Australia (do miss Christmas in England)
My teachers were Dr Dolby (Physics), Miss Riddle (Biology), Miss Collins (French), Mrs Hall (PE I think), Mrs Sutton (?), Miss O'Dell (music), Miss Goring (Geography ... mainly Mt Kilimanjaro), Mr Williams (maths), Miss Styles (Religious Eduction), Miss Canavan-Jones aka Mrs Miles-Brown.
and a few others that I'm sure I'll think of when I sign off!!!!

Honore et Labore.

My grandfather, Tom Parsons, went through the Roan School from about 1955. He became an art teacher and immigrated with his family to Australia, where he became a well known artist and educator in Canberra. Unfortunately he passed away in 2005, but I am hoping to write a biography to accompany a retrospective exhibit to be held in a few years. I'd love to get in touch with anyone at the school at the time: email john-hart@hotmail.com.au

Hello to anyone who remembers me when I had a lot less waist and a lot more hair! I was at Roan from around 1970/71 until 75/76. I, of course remember Alfie Knott and many others but the one I will never forget was my form master T.B.H (Terry) Hall - a great bloke who really took time with us, organising rambles on a Sunday and theatre trips to the Greenwich theatre. Would love to hear from anyone in touch with him or any of my former classmates!

Delighted to see that the 69-76 boys never seem to get involved in all this nostalgia stuff and must be as miserable now as we were then

Hello Mark. I spent the first two years (3rd and shell) sitting close to Edward and I was delighted when nearly 50 years later he began to attend our Alf Knott Christmas lunches in Greenwich. What surprised me was how his magnificent Teddy boy quiff had ...well...disappeared! I was truly saddened to hear from my chum John Bruce that he had died, O far too early.Best wishes

Hi All,

As an old Roan boy (82-87) I am new to this site, is anyone here from my days or the days of my recently departed father Edward Gould who also attended Roan and regularly attended the dinners for the late Alfie Knott?

Does anyone know the whereabouts of an old friend, Nick Kay, 1971 - 1977? What with the Army, and spells living abroad, I have managed to lose touch. It would be good to hear from him again, and anyone else who remembers me.

Just got around to viewing the pics from the Centenary Dinner. Looks as though everyone had a good time & made me sad that I couldn't make it over from Canada. This especially as I've had pointed out to me several of my classmates...wouldn't have recognized them otherwise!!
Roan Forever! - the best days of my young life.

Hi Everyone

It's that time of year again - and we have decided to continue with our
Christmas Lunch tradition albeit without our main man. So after 20 years
with Alf as our honoured guest, and one, last year, which he missed through
ill-health, our 22nd will be to commemorate our favourite teacher.

We plan to meet on Friday, 9th December at the Café Rouge in Greenwich at
12.30pm.

Please put it in your diary now, and let me know if you plan to come. It
will follow the same format as in previous years (arrival - vague
recognition of someone you sat next to for 6 years - forget what we
ordered - anecdotes about weird Roan customs, teachers and boys - nice
lunch - lots of wine - nomination of someone who got O level maths to sort
out the bill - off to the pub for the rest of the afternoon!).

As last year, Café Rouge are asking us to pre-order. A copy of this year's
menu is attached. Please can you let me know what you want to eat?
They are also asking for a £5 per head deposit!

I would like to confirm numbers as soon as possible as I will be out of the
country from November 9 to 25. Please make cheques payable to me and send to
me at 14 Brookmead Avenue, Bromley, BR1 2LA, and I will settle with a credit
card.

Any queries email or call me on 020 8467 0664.

I look forward to hearing from you.
