Hunt for old classmates

OLD SCHOOL: Barbara Graham (back row, fourth from left) with her old classmates

FORMER Mancunian Barbara Graham is appealing for help in identifying members of her old class at Broughton Jewish Primary School.

Barbara (nee Canton) now lives in Australia with husband Jack, but is looking for people to come forward with their memories of the old Broughton Jewish School on Singleton Road.

Barbara is pictured with her class in 1963, shortly before moving to Israel with her family in September of that year.

After settling into kibbutz life on Amiad in Galilee, Barbara became the outstanding soldier during her company's basic training.

Her service was spent in the Field School in Eilat, after which she became a dolphin trainer at the-then new Tel Aviv Dolphinarium.

While there, she met Jack Graham, a volunteer from South Australia, who whisked her away to Oz and they were wed soon afterwards.

The couple have a 22-year-old daughter Ocean, a 19-year-old son Ben and a 17-year-old daughter Tal.
