A note from Sharon ... Friday 18th February 2011
I do like the Sunday School Anniversary photo !!

A note from Erina ... Sunday 20th February 2011
Mostly right, Sharon
But in the pulpit, Rev Breguet, pronounced Brigay, and Cecil Johnston, a visiting preacher from the USA sitting with him ... not Grandpa
Yes, it was me with the arms out and trying to fly !!
On the right the lady with large white collar is Kay Wallace
The Sunday School Anniversaries were the highlight of the year for most of us

A note from Fiona ... Monday 21st February 2011
Any chance the lady sitting where Erina's right hand is could be Aunty Jessie ?
Or was she playing the organ ?
Also the man standing a few rows behind her and directly below the lady with the itchy nose
Is that Coralie's father ? ... can't remember the name

A note from Sharon ... Monday 21st February 2011
It does look like Aunty Jessie
What do you think, Denny ... is it your Mum ?
That man is Coralie's father, Fiona
His name is Peter Hill, then Robert Wight, then somebody, then Jim Thompson
Those names just came to me in a flash !! ... are they correct ?

Hey Denny and Rex
Good job with the names, especially the girls on the right hand side
I recognised a lot of the names but not the faces until I matched them with your list
It's nice that we have all put our bit in to try to make the page complete
Lots of fun to look at and remember !!
