Who remembers St Dominic’s Middle School in the late 70s, early 80s. It was situated in Leopoldo Street, Leeds7, and I spent my happiest times there.
My best mate was Victor Obanye and my favourite teacher Mr. Howell!

St Dominic's became the Holy Rosary and St Anne's primary and is still on the same site. My father-in-law was the caretaker there for 20-odd years, Mr Neville.

Does anyone remember St Charles school which was next to New York Road and I went there mid/late 50s. It had one concrete playground in which we boys played football and every so often the ball (heavy leather) would go sailing over the wrought iron fence onto the poor unsuspecting drivers on New York Road as it swept from the Woodpecker Junction up to North Street. The road level was much lower then and the fact that there was never a major accident was a minor miracle.

Don't kmow why they never amalgamated St. Charles with my School Mount Saint Marys which was only a Mile or so away. In those days the Catholic Schools got very little financial help from the Leeds City Council and it would have made much more sense.
