Pupils and teachers of the West Coast Infant School taken in September 1970.

on board the RFA Fort Rosalie

This was taken on board an RFA ammunition ship called Fort Rosalie.  On the scan image are the names of some of the children in their own handwriting.  The tall teacher in the middle was the head of the school, and Margaret (a teacher) is on the right.

Margaret said that this little group were about 5-6 years old in September 1970, and that they all left school at the end of term together to return to UK.

West Coast Infants, class 5 - sept 1970

We had a great day on the bum boat out to the ship anchored in the roads, and on the ship itself where we had a party. The children were very young but someone might remember

I remember Simon, Sandra and Josephine on this picture taken after the Fort Rosalie visit by children of class 5 West Coast Infants School

This photo submitted by Chris James (front centre) taken at the West Coast Infants School.  David Robinson is on the right with a girl to his right.  David's father was in the R.A.O.C. and he was in Singapore from 1968 to 1971.  David has said that the girl on the far left with her arm in plaster is Penny Clayton and that the Claytons lived next door to him in Green Leaf Rise, Tanglin.

Thanks to Keith Simpson for these two photos of a Christmas Play. Keith is unsure if it was performed at West Coast in 1967 or the RN School in 1968.  Keith is soldier No 1.
