Anyone Else Survive Catholic School in the 1950's?

Just wondering if anyone else out there survived Catholic school – and the nuns – in the 1950s?

Not the 50's but the 70's & 80's... I think the only difference was that I wasn't beat senseless with a ruler. ;D

Hey... I moved around so much in my chair that one day, one of the nuns tied me to the chair with my belt!

My mom survived catholic school in the 40's. My brother in the 60's, my sister and I in the 70's. There were too many nuns left by the time I got there. And they no longer wore habits. :)

Yes Rick...1950's at St. Mary's in the Bronx. My most traumatic memory is the Principal pulling me out of my desk by my tie and slapping me across the face because I was smiling. But, hey...we survived anyway.

I guess I'm one of not too many who loved the nuns who taught him from grade school through college~ 1960s to almost 1980. I still am in contact my 2nd grade teacher who was and is kind and loving. My teacher were the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. Bless you SNJMs!

The picture is of some of the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary, a GREAT bunch who taught me in the 1960s. I love those gals! They made me aware of my strengths and encouraged me, both in and out of class. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Many of the sisters who taught me are gone now, but a few are still very much alive and kicking, and I stay in touch with them. (Thanks, Marymount!)
