Dean School badge from Kathleen Glancy's school uniform

1950

About this memory

I loved school and when Dorothy Edmund became headmistress in late 1953 she transformed the school. She was determined to give the school a special place by creating it's own uniform. She rallied parents together and asked for support financially. Although it would not be a lot, it was a lot to some folks and it caused some controversy. A school badge was specially designed. Miss Edmund was strict and eventually was held in high regard by both parents and children. She taught us all to be proud of our school. School outings were sometimes to Edinburgh Zoo and Gullane in East Lothian. The summers always seemed to be warm.
