Photos Appeal. 21/04/2009

Hi Gavin, This may be a bit of a forlorn hope but, here goes. My name is Martin Steven Unwin, and I was an Inmate at Walker Street 1964 - 1968. I have been living in Australia since 1983 and, due to a fire in the 1990s, I have lost all my photos of my detention there (and at Beauvale Primary). I realise that your re-union catered for the group who finished their sentence on the year I commenced but, if you could put the word out I would love to regain a few of my memories from that time. There must be a few of your number who had younger siblings who attended during my sojurn there. Any photos or contacts which you can pass on to me would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Steve Unwin

Latest news, and additions to this site.

12/11/2008 - Christine Newton's name added to the list of pupils, making the list now 198 names long - sorry Christine.

20/09/2008 - Well, it is now the morning after the reunion, and for those of you that thought about attending, but didn't quite make it, you really did miss a very good night. For those that did attend, which must have been about 80 of us, thanks for making the reunion such a success, and a gold star to you all. From Gavin, Georgina, and Rita.

17/09/2008 - Two more class photos, a 4th. year one, (Ref.401), and a 2nd. year one, (Ref.203), have been supplied by Eileen Wingfield, and they have now have been added to the 'Second Year Photographs' and 'Fourth Year Photographs' pages. The links to these pages are below these updates, and also under the respective year photographs on this page. Eileen has also supplied a 'better condition' replacement for the 1st Year photo, (Ref 101), plus two school choir photos which I have now added to the 'Other School Activities' page. Eileen has also said that she doesn't think that she will be able to attend the reunion, but she would be happy for anyone to contact her, she has given me her email address to pass on, so just contact me using the email address on this page, and I will forward her email address to you. - Gavin

26/08/2008 - With less than one month to go until the reunion, Ian Johnson has now informed me that over 75% of his allocation of tickets have now been sold. We already have more than 60 pupils confirmed as attending, so it is important that those who have not yet purchased their tickets should make sure that they purchase them as soon as possible, not only to secure their place, but also so that Rita and Georgina can order the required amount of food for the buffet. Rita and Georgina still have a few tickets for sale if anyone wants to contact them directly. I have had a few people contact me who have already bought tickets for their partners without realising there was a partner restriction, don't worry if you are one of these as partners will not be turned away as long as they have a ticket.
