Primary school appeal to celebrate 40th annivesary
11:00am Sunday 1st September 2013 in News
NEROCHE Primary School in Broadway will be celebrating its 40th birthday this autumn term.
The governors at the school hope to arrange events and activities to mark this event, and are keen to hear from past staff and pupils, especially if they have memorabilia or memories to share.
The schools in the villages of Broadway, Don-yatt and Horton closed at the end of the summer term in 1973 with children transferring to the newly opened school in Broadway.
The governors are particularly keen to hear from the group of children who would have been the oldest to transfer, and, therefore, the first group to move on to their secondary education in 1974.
If any of the following people are able to get in touch with the school the governors would be pleased to hear from them: Peter Cosgrove, Carolyn Turner, Irene Petty, Julie Lazell, Sally-Anne Laver, Ann White, David Bond, Alyson Carter, Jennifer Carr, Janet Bennett, Malcolm Bartlett, Alan Sutton, Ian Whitefield, Philip Walsh, Christopher Steers, Alison Bond, Anthea Mills and Meryl Woolcott.
The governors are interested in seeing any class photos from that time, especially any taken with Mr S. Hedley, the school’s first head tea-cher, or the following members of his staff: Mrs. K. Thickett, Miss Rees-Davies, Miss S. Burrows, Mr. T. Holmes and Mrs. J. Kay-Newman.
