"It was great to see the photos of my old teachers andhead-master. Sean Cousins ended up becoming a very dear friend, unfortunately we lost contact when he moved back to Ireland with his family. He used to give me private lessons after school (boy was he a hard task master.) Mr. Monkley, was a wonderful man, I can remember on my last year at Muf Primary, I helped out with the sports day and I received a letter (which I still have ) thanking me for all my help. It is quite funny really as it was addressed to Miss W. Henry, and he crossed it out and put Wilma!"

When Mr Monkley became headmaster of Muf Primary in 1960 - it was also my first year there in Standard 1. I had the pleasure of being the very first pupil to be caned by him in both his and my first week there! Even though I was only 7, I vividly recall that he appeared to be more nervous about the caning than I was. The wee lassie on page 4 with Mr Monkley is Carol Bryant (what a looker she was!!)

Steve Keeley wrote on the GNR Message Board:

.... Carol Bryant was in my class, and I couldn't really remember what Mr. Monkley looked like after 40 years, but once you see the picture it all comes back. Actually I think I am in the picture at the bottom of page 1 (back to camera...short back and sides with big ears!). Sean Cousins (pg 2) taught Carol Bryant and me in Std 5 in 1965.
