I am a British Citizen and have been living in Lesotho, Southern Africa since 1983.
I lived in Herne Hill and East Dulwich from 1940-1983. I attended Dulwich Hamlet Infant and Primary School before attending Mary Datchelor Grammar School for Girls.. from 1948-1955. I then went to Lincoln Teachers Training College from 1955- 1957.
Whilst at Lincoln I studied History and wrote a thesis about Camberwell. My completed work was left at Dulwich Library where I thought it would be helpful for other Students in the area. I do not know if it is still there. I would be interested to find out.
After qualifying as a teacher I taught for 2 years in Hampshire and then retuned to London, to work at Heber Road Primary School, East Dulwich. from 1959-1978.

I have many memories of my time there and will be writing about them on the, ” East Dulwich Forum. ”
Yours Faithfully Anne Dyson(Ncheke)

    Hi Anne,
    I remember you very well and you taught my sister Karen Williams at Heber. I was in the Unit team and my sister was in top team. I have photos of this event too, it was magical day and I remember my mother telling us never to forget it.
    It is so lovely that your writing about Dulwich of that time, can’t wait to see your published article . Literally everyone had so much respect for Mr Steven’s headmaster and the inclusion that everyone was able to participate in the sporting competitions . My sister loved the art department doing pottery, so much she became department head of art, then independent artist.

    Hi Anne
    My name is Mark Davis. My sister, Ann-Marie Andrews, and I attended Heber Road Junior School from 1972 – 1978. Our Mum was Gina Andrews. We moved to Cambridgeshire 12/12/77 and; when we came back the following year to visit friends…you let us stay at your place on Barry Rd. I remember your favourite album at the time was Matumbi. I was in The Unit and Ann-Marie was in Top Team and whenever I imagine the Essence of an Art Teacher… Lovely Anne Dyson ALWAYS resides that space❤️
