The school magazine-"THE TORCH"
Photo: Barrie Old

Do you remember our school magazine? this is the cover of the 1960 (Easter) edition. My final year. This was the 'new look' cover with the school crest which, according to H P,we take pride in. I came across the 1957-1960,1964 & 1970 (25th edition), that was posted out to our home addresses, in the attic last year.
