HAPPY NEW YEAR
Hi. Jane Sweet here. 1960-64. I recognise some of you names.🤗 Does anyone know the whereabouts of Deana Alberts? Be lovely to hear from anyone who remembers me.
I was at school in the 50my name was Christine Tomalin
I was their 59to63
Where have all the girls gone from my year at Pendeford
Went there rubbish
Has anyone got wobaston pictures from 57-61 or rakegate 54 - 57 I was Sandra stokes
Trying to get in touch with as many of pupils from my year
Regards Tony Head
I was just wondering my nan had a best friend called Pauline Edwards who went to Wobaston school in the 50s (she emigrated to new Zealand) and some of the people who lived on the same road as her went to Wobaston around the same time to. My nans name was Kathleen Andrews
Looking for robert miles or anyone who remembers me
Following the death of my husband ten years ago I started a long lost family search. I was adopted at ten days old in 1943. In November 2011 I went to the Archives Office in Wolverhampton in the vain hope of finding my family. I was struggling to find anything but with the help of the Archivist I was successful. What a surprise, I discovered that I had both a half brother and sister who also went to Wobaston. My half brother was only just over two years younger than me so would have been there at the same time as me! My sister and I had both married racing cyclist, we had both had dancing lessons at Sheila Grooms and attended the Queens Business College. My sister and I have made up for lost time. As children we had both wanted a sister.
My name is Sandra Wilson nee stokes who was at wobaston 1957 till 61

FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS PLEASE JOIN OUR NEW FACEBOOK “WOBASTON SECONDARY MODERN SCHOOL GROUP”

Operating as usual

Have changed the name of our “Page” to make it easier to differentiate between it and the new “Group”. We are hoping that all the follower of this page will join the “Wobaston Secondary Modern School Group” where it is a little easier to make new posts and interact with other posters. Good luck.

04/08/2021

Glad to say that our new “Wobaston Secondary Modern School Former Students’ Group” is now up and running. All the followers and friends of this page are invited to join it, if they haven’t already. It is presently a public group so any posts can presently be seen by anyone looking for our school.
We are hoping you will all feel free to post on it and also add any photos to the individual albums.
This page will still be kept open as there are lots of interesting posts from former students on it which unfortunately we are not able to transfer to the new group.

A bit of humour for all our former students (copied and amended slightly

Borrowed this:

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GUILTY OF LOOKING AT OTHERS YOUR OWN AGE AND THINKING, SURELY I CAN'T LOOK THAT OLD? WELL......YOU'LL LOVE THIS ONE!

A FEW YEARS BACK, I WAS SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW DENTIST. I NOTICED HIS DENTAL DIPLOMA, WHICH BORE HIS FULL NAME.
SUDDENLY, I REMEMBERED A TALL, HANDSOME, DARK HAIRED BOY WITH THE SAME NAME HAD BEEN IN MY SECONDARY SCHOOL CLASS SOME YEARS AGO. COULD HE BE THE SAME GUY THAT I HAD A SECRET CRUSH ON, WAY BACK THEN?
UPON SEEING HIM, HOWEVER, I QUICKLY DISCARDED ANY SUCH THOUGHT. THIS BALDING, GREY HAIRED MAN WITH THE DEEPLY LINED FACE WAS FAR TOO OLD TO HAVE BEEN MY CLASSMATE.
AFTER HE EXAMINED MY TEETH, I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD ATTENDED WOBASTON SECONDARY MODERN SCHOOL .
'YES, YES I DID. I'M A WOBIE! 'HE BEAMED WITH PRIDE.
'WHEN DID YOU LEAVE TO GO TO COLLEGE?' I ASKED
HE ANSWERED, “IN 1964, WHY DO YOU ASK?”
'YOU WERE IN MY CLASS!' I EXCLAIMED.
HE LOOKED AT ME CLOSELY.
THEN THE UGLY,
OLD,
BALD,
WRINKLED,
FAT,
GREY HAIRED,
DECREPIT ASKED..

'WHAT DID YOU TEACH?'

We are still struggling to find any way of returning to the old version of Page which this page was set up on. Facebook has appeared to turn it into a business page and as admin only use an Apple app (or online version) to access it we can see no way former students can post except as mentioned earlier in the online version. If anyone has the Facebook android app can they please advise if there is an option for visitors posts/mentions by followers? We have considered setting up a group instead but although we could transfer all the photos, we couldn’t do the same with all the lovely comments by former students.
We have made a report to Facebook about our problems.

05/05/2021

Further to our post about the recent update. The Apple app still doesn’t seem to have a way of looking at what was called “Visitor’s Posts”. However after some seeking, we have found that if you log in to your Facebook internet page, you can view them if you click on “Mentions” as shown in this screenshot. We also checked the Android app and “Mentions” appears on the bar too. So only Apple has the problem at present. Hope this helps everyone.

02/05/2021

Sorry folks, Facebook has excelled themselves this time and completely changed our page. No more “likers” only followers. It doesn’t seem to be loading properly at the moment but hopefully we can sort it out.
