Sandwickhill School Log Books and School Memories Event

To mark Sandwickhill School’s 132 year history , the school pupils are keeping a school log book recording the weekly activities of the school.  We have created a blog that presents a selection of their weekly comments and intersperses these with comments from the school log book of 100 years ago.  Please click on the link and have a look!

Tonight from 7.30pm until 9pm the school is hosting an informal coffee evening to which all are invited.  As well as tea and cakes, a small exhibition of school photographs will be on display to kick start people’s reminiscences of their time at the school. The school is keen to find more examples of photographs, report cards, records or other old school memorabilia which can be copied and returned to their owners. These will form the basis of an exhibition and publication to be produced in the final term as a lasting memorial to the school’s long history.

Sandwickhill head teacher, Calum Maclean, said: “This is the start of a series of events to celebrate the school and the role it has played in the local community. We’re keen to uncover more about the school’s history from former pupils and staff and this event is a chance for people to start sharing their memories.”
