Personal Recollections

 

“My uncle, Alma Vass went to Llanrhos School, to the best of my knowledge from about 1901 to 1905. I believe it was 1901 when his family moved into the area from Berkshire. I attended Sunday School there from 1950 to 1961 and have many happy memories of the building. I am sure everyone would remember the toilets out the back, with nettles growing through the seats and we only made use of ‘the facilities’ in dire emergencies. At this time Mr Butler, the verger lived in the attached dwelling – the old Headmaster’s house.

The premises were revamped in the 1960s and at a jumble sale my mother bought a picture that hung on the wall of the schoolroom for years. She paid two shillings (10p) for it and it is still much loved. The picture, now cleaned, was painted by Clara Perrin of Glan Conwy. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but perhaps the influence of the Old School played a part, I later became a teacher.”
