Housewives Keep Up Their StudiesMarried women in Havering don’t let household chores take over where their education left off.

More and more of them are joining evening classes- and Hornchurch College of Further Education.

The college held its first reception and prize giving for Secretarial Business Studies, on Wednesday night.

Two married women were awarded prizes for their success with a part-time secretarial course.

They were Mrs. Christine Goddard, of Woodfield-drive, Romford, and Mrs. Alethea Jacobson, of Carlton-road, Romford.

They are both housewives who had never done any shorthand or typing until they started the course part-time.

Fifty women have enrolled for the courses, which are for either beginners, or women who need the refresher courses before starting to work again.


Mr. P. Perry from the British Association for Commercial and Industrial Education, was the main speaker.

He said: “I travel around the country and see many colleges for further education.”

“It is good to see that this building was put to such good use.”

“And I was particularly pleased to present the prizes to the two married students.”

The other prizes were awarded to April Ambler, Brigitte Lechner, Julia Cosser (full time secretarial); Mr. Graham Munting and Miss Bernice Kaye (Ordinary National Diploma in Business Studies); Mr J. Floyd (Commerce and Selling); Miss Hilary Johnson and Miss Linda Hughes (Grammar schools linked course).

In the day-release courses, there was Miss S. Row, from May and Bakers, Miss J. Lowes from C.W.S, Mr. P. Jolly (Eastern Electricity), Miss J. Blasdale (London Transport).

The evening classes’ awards went to Miss V. Aldridge and Mrs. V. Amsden, and a prize for local government studies went to Mr. G. T. Griggs from the Havering Council’s Borough Treasurer’s Office.
