Discover Realise Honour Shape

1974-1976

 

Mr Davies sadly didn't return after the Summer due to ill health.  He had been Head of Religious Studies since September 1970.  We wished him a happy retirement.

The Parents' Association bought stage lighting equipment for the hall.

The Lions' Club of Gloucester generously donated a new Umpire's chair for the tennis courts.

In October a death sentence was given to seven trees in the school's grounds.  Luckily a report by a Tree Surgeon advised on reducing the height of the trees instead of felling.  Sadly, some of the trees had already been felled.  The following Spring the trees were pollarded and a fund was launched to pay the £120 costs.  The £120 was raised plus £47 towards future treatment.
