I attended Roan from 1962-1968. During that time I went on a school trip to La Rochelle. Does anyone know the name of the lycee where we stayed and it's actual location in La Rochelle

Hi all. I have just come across this website. I was at Roan Boys from 1970 to 1977. Friends I can remember from school - Graham Hay, Martin Sharp, Andy Jewell, Kerry Hutchins, Michael Lay, Rob Taylor (a.k.a. "Gamma", plus others. Teachers Mr Witten (English), Mr Copson (Latin), Mr Hoare and Mr Greenberg (both French), Mr James and Mr Bednarz(?) both Physics, Mr Dolan (Chemistry), Mr Rouncefield (Geography) plus many others.

I remember cross-country runs in Greenwich Park and went on to represent the school at this sport as well as the 400m - Kerry Hutchins usually had the edge on me for speed - just!

The day I left, after my last A-level, we moved to Sussex so I lost touch with everyone from school. I served in the Royal Navy for a few years then trained as a teacher. I taught Physics for 28 years in Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire and am now retired.

Hi there, have also just come across this web site. I remember you too Renée. How are you? What have you ended up doing? I also remember the wonderful productions with Val Pollock and Frank Hornblower. Those were happy memories and the parties...... which I think I did more of than anything else.

To Harry Flack.
Just on the website after many months so just read your reply to my earlier reminiscences. Mr Cherckersle I do not recall. But I do recall that Trottier would hurl his wallet of keys at any boy being inattentive. & with deadly aim.
I don't think he'd get away with that these days. And you are correct in your observations re:Lepinniere & Milne.
This past week I had a lengthy phone chat with another of our classmates: Dr. David Hamblen, C.B.E. Do you remember him? He's fit like me but more so I suspect - but it's all relative at our age isn't it!!?
I was carrying on a correspondence with Dennis Leigh for a few years but he seems to have tired of that. He is a retired C.of.E. Reverend.
And several years ago now I was speaking a few times by phone with Frank Bulloch, the X-country champ. He lives in Canberra, Aus.. Then one day I called him because I hadn't heard from him for awhile & he told me he'd become a reclusive & didn't want contact with anyone. Strange to say the least!
We lost Burgess to a heart attack a couple of years back.
Regards.

At Roan 1969-74. Ann Brengelman - I remember you very well. We did some kind of excursion into the woods (Epping Forest, perhaps?) and then performed a little play in the classroom. We wanted to be all American and use the term "Buster" but you said it wasn't polite! Living in Pennsylvania now. I have such fond memories of my time at Roan, and remember all the teachers you mentioned. I loved Miss Vincent, although she terrified me. Mrs. Pollock was my favourite and I still think of Mrs. Barker whenever I cook Yorkshire puddings!

Many thanks to Derek carter. Sorry to be tardy in replying. You may also recall a Mr Checkersle, who had been in the commandoes. He had a 'short fuse' and a tendency to throw the Blackboard Rubber ( a heavy wooden one) at a pupil when provoked. he played in goal at various foot ball matches and was very fit. Mr Lupinierre (French) was hopeless in keeping order in class but Mr Milne (English ??) had only to walk into the room for complete silence .Every boy was on his feet as soon as he appeared.

Why are there so many photos missing in Galleries. Or is it just my PC at fault. David Clifton.
