Thank you too to all our visitors who came with scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, old school photos, trophies and more! It was fascinating to see the mementoes and the connections between people - old classmates, teachers and students from 30 years ago, multiple family generations who had all attended the school, future students coming to learn a bit about their new school, also a past student now living in America.
The tours were very popular with long waiting lists. Many people wanted to have a last look round their old school before it is replaced. Many memories and stories emerged as people once again walked familiar corridors and viewed the plans for the new building.
The memory wall grew as visitors recalled times past and items were added to our timeline.
Photographer Laura Rouse, assisted by Portia Saunders and Nisha Haq, was very busy in the photo booth taking some stunning photographs of visitors.
