Here Ray recalls her teachers.
TranscriptWe had a very caring form mistress, quite nice, quite a good lady, single person, lived on London Road. They were all quite good actually. Perhaps quite protective of me in one way because I was the only one at school at that time in my five years there, I was the only one who was physically impaired.
