"I was also a five year old when I first went there."

A review of The Sacred Heart Convent by Roger Michael Parker written on Tuesday 20th of December 2016


My Father didn't return from WW2. I was born in 1941 and, as my Mother could not look after me, I was sent as a "boarding" pupil to the "Convent School" in March 1946. I still have horrific memories of nuns who seemed to me to be "Prison Guards" in black robes and white head-dresses. I can remember being beaten with a broken chair leg, which one of the "warders" seemed to have decided was the right thing to use, because I made a comment while waiting in the queue to go into breakfast one morning. Had there been any kind of National body at that time which would have been able to examine the treatment of the children in the care of that Convent School, it would have been closed down!.
