Dr John Garson married Ruth Wynick in 1948.  Their two daughters were Nicole (Nikki) born 1952 and Susan (Suki) born 1953.   Nikki is No. 26 on page 3.  Dr Garson and his family of ‘Bethune’ High Road, Langdon Hills, emigrated to Canada in the sixties.

No. 39 Suki Garson, was this her real name, Suki, or a name she was affectionately known as by her school friends? The name sounds just too cute to be real, especially for the time. Garson, not being a particularly common name, might she have been related to Doctor Garson, who shared the surgery at Hiawatha, with Doctor Long?

I think I am number 38 in the photograph Maureen Savill.  I recall some of the girls names Ursula Hurley and Elizabeth Wackett, I wondered whether they recall my name. I emigrated to Australia in 1989.

No 7 is Mrs Middleton school secretary. ooh I wish they had one of these photos for 1962, when I started, still I do recognise quite a few, great stuff.

No 1 is Diana Blackford, she emigrated to Australia in about 1964 - according to my mother, Mrs Norma Rand (nee Ruffler) who ran the cubs, with her husband Eric Rand, a few years before this photo was taken. Both now in their 80s, they are fit and well and living in Lincolnshire

No.14 is Caroline Lock who lived next door but one to the school ( south side ).

No.34 is Christine Robinson, my sister. No.22 is Frances Tyler, who was probably the first person I spoke to when I started school in Mrs Nichols class.

And No.15 is Patricia Chesterman, who I sat next to in Mrs Wendons class. It was very unusual for a boy to sit next to a girl in those days, but she used to make such a fuss of me (fill my inkwell for me, and so on) and we used to get on so well (soul mates really), so it seemed a sensible thing to do. Didn't get any stick from the other boys though.
