Attended WPS P1-P7 leaving 1979 had a great set of teachers, some a little more scary than others. We all had lots of fun around "The Big Tree" and getting told off for climbing it. School dinner - you either loved or hated them with semolina pudding a specialty. Then there was the big black oil storage tank affectionately known by the boys as "The Jobby Machine". Loved the walk home through Whiteabbey village and the customary stop at Alecs sweet shop for a bubbly. Great school so many good memories.

Attended WPS from 1957-63. Miss Ashe not to be messed with. Mr Gribben was class even when you were a dummy violinist in the orchestra. Had the 'pleasure' of being in Herbie Topping's office on many an occasion.

Absolutely loved every moment at Whiteabbey (1953-59). Mr. Gribben
( Juby) was a legend! Still doing my italics!!! Happy days!!

Brilliant school. Loved Mr Gribben. We learnt algebra, italic writing and everybody learnt a musical instrument.
I remember a concert we did for the parents and he gave us Mars bars to say thank you and divided them up so fairly we had three and a third each!! I was there 1956 to 1961. Fabulous country dancing at lunchtime on a wet day. Great memories.

Attended 1967 - 1973. Mrs Friar P1, Mrs Mills P2, Mrs Rodgers P3, Mrs Baxter P4, Mrs Ledley P5, Miss Ash P6 (scary) and Mr Gribben P7. Never liked the school dinners. Hated lumpy mashed potato. Mr Topping was the principal when I started, but he retired and was succeeded by Mr Long.

Attended from 1966 to 1971 was Christine McKeown then. We lived opposite the school in 27 Old Manse Road. Mr Gribben(P7) would send a comic and sixpence when you were off sick. Miss Ash (P6) frightened me!

Liked Mr Gribben ("Zubby") Mrs Friar Biddy Sinclair(del head) Mr McMillan and not forgetting Herby Topping, Head Master. Very accurate with the cane.

Valerie (nee Howell) & I attended in the 1950's, but can't work out if we were in the same classes. Is there any way to check? Can you help please?
