So happy to read this great post about accomplished Wesley women. Congratulations to all of them. More posts like this please!

Things have changed. In '73 I was told I didn't need higher grade maths - because I was a girl.

When I scattered far from Wesley over 50 years ago I scattered my school uniforms too!

I have a photo of myself at the age of 7 wearing a WCD blazer with the old logo... is that of any interest? Janice you should try Ruth Bell (Class of 1963) She was wearing Wesley clothes at a recent reunion... she may have a vintage garment? Good luck.

To celebrate 175 years of its existence, Wesley College will sponsor a number of past pupils to realize a project of their choosing. The aim of this programme is to make a difference in some area of activity, and to report back to pupils of the College on what they have done. The area may be innovative, different, artistic, charitable, musical, sporting, educational. “Making A Difference” is the theme: the ways this might be done are left to the imagination and the challenge is to push the boundaries.

The class of 1969 are in the process of organising a reunion later this year..please pm me if interested or contact the Alumni through our email address.. thanks

Lorna Smith 2nd from right, Paula Walker 4th from right, might be class of 1970 or 71.

Lorna Smith 2nd from right, Paula Walker 4th from right and I think Penny Freeman 3rd from left, maybe me Carole Wilkinson 2nd from left, which sounds ridiculous that I'm not sure about myself, maybe Vivien Hughes 1st from left! Penny, Vivien and myself are class of 69!

I'm Carole Wilkinson Class of 69!!

Is that Helen Lowe and Lorna Smith
