Inter-schools athletic competition

This photograph shows the Woodingdean Primary School athletics team of 1959. It was taken I believe, just before the annual annual inter-schools athletic competition which was held at Withdean Stadium.

I am seated in the front row, middle. The tall girl at the centre back is Angela Birch who lived in Crescent Drive North. She was one of my sister's best friends. The teacher in the photograph is Mr Collins.

Do you remember?

Dave, so good to see the photo of my sister Angela Birch. She won the 100yds championship that year and went on later to win the All-England and ran for GB in internationals as well as the World Student Games in Tokyo in 1967.
