I was entrusted with taking care of the garden in the 4th and 5th years. You will see some of these guys in earlier pictures and group ones taken at Conway Road.
I also went to Cage Lane Mission on Lakedale Road during my Sunday School years, also the Cub and Scout troop there.

Front row, middle, is Mr. Griffin, who was the headmaster at Oakmere. I remember his squeaky shoes vividly; you would always know when he was coming around! This group is all the sub-prefect and prefects at Oakmere.

The first two rows are all 5th year students. I was a Sub-prefect here (back row, 3rd from right) but became a Prefect in my 5th year. I was entrusted with making sure there were no kids in the school during break times. I was also made the official bell ringer. I was the oldest boy at Oakmere in my 5th year.
