Great photo - but was it really taken at the school? Nothing looks familiar! I wonder who the teacher was?!

Can't testify 100% to precise location, only the event sixty five years ago on 2nd June. Maybe we were transported off somewhere for the party. Photograph appears professionally taken, I asume at the behest of school. I hope one or two ex Verdala junior may recognise themself and post a comment. Dad was on the Forth, a more or less permanent fixture at Msida Creek but was sent back to UK to take up a position in the Fleet Review.
