Photo has seen better days but it is 49 years old!

Surprisingly I can recall quite a few names here.

Brings back a lot of memories.

  • Mr. COOK proved to be an inspiration for me, taking the time one day to chat to myself and Laurie Mciver. Explaining the importance to travel and see the world over material objects. After leading a British expedition in 2004 in Nigeria and promoting education in Nigeria I was made an honoury Chief. I later facilitated the return of the first two Benin Bronzes back to the king/oba of Benin City. Thank you Mr. Cook for taking the time to speak to Laurie and myself that day.

  • Stuart Cook – your dad taught me in the 60s and was a terrific teacher and an all-round good man. And your mum, as I remember an evening round your mum and dad’s house not long after I left school. Genuinely good people committed to doing the very best they could for working class kids. Do say hello to them from me. I hope they remember me as fondly as I remember then.

  • OMG – I have just seen a picture of my dad – Mr Cook – in one of these pictures. Can’t believe he looked so young! I think he was one of the first teachers at the school.

    [Pru, sorry but we do not allow personal contact details to be published on the site and I have redacted Steve’s email address, which must have been published in error. However, if you click on one of the photo panels, you will get a larger version of the image and if you then move your cursor over that you will get a high-magnification zoom and you can pan round the photo by moving the cursor. I think you should be able to recognise your siblings that way if they’re there. Ed.]
