Help with 1962/63 School Photo

Many thanks to Brendan Cronin now of Carrigtwohill who sent us this photo that was taken in Millstreet Presentation Convent National School in or around 1962/63. Brendan says that he “has done his best to put names to faces, but there are many blanks.  Perhaps some of my old school mates would be able to identify the boys and girls in that photo”.
