The Wee BAP….
« on: Thursday 02 September 21 02:18 BST (UK) »
I went to the Bap 1941-1948 and then to BRA. “Figgie” was the  headmaster, Mr. Miller, Miss Boggs were teachers. I met Figgies son at a reunion in Toronto a few years ago. He was a Professor in the US.
I also lived across the street from. Violet Gordon  was good friends with her son Jim.
My two younger brothers, now living in Australia also went to the Bap.
Happy Memories

Welcome to Rootschat  :D

Are you referring to a school or college that are in Canada?  I'm afraid BAP & BRA have no meaning for me. Good to know that you have happy memories of these places.

I wonder how much Miss Boggs was teased about her surname?  :-\ Hopefully she married and therefore had a more nondescript surname.
