Just a sad note, to let people know who were friends with Dave Lee (1963-70 @ Roan). Dave sadly passed away in December2011. After 30+ years without meeting, we actually met up in Sept '09. Dave was a great guy, and a stalwart of the footie team. He will be much missed by his friends & family.

Bowsing the web came across this site which brings back many memories. I scanned the school photo but couldn't find my ugly mug. I am still in touch with Bill White who told me of Alfie Knotts demise, I have many fond memories of him. As a pupil during 1951 - 1959 I dont know if there are many of my contemporaries still around who rememeber me

At Roan 1965-72. Been in touch with a few old faces recently, Peter Cox, Keith Banks. Ron Edworthy. Any others out there?
I am researching my mothers history and she tells me she attended the then Roan School before it moved over to the John Roan School. Her name was Betty Cosker and she was born in 1920 so I'm not sure what years she was there. Is there anyone out there who might remember her?

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?
