Ex Willesborough Pupils
Are you an ex pupil of Willesborough infant and junior school?
Every year we have the pleasure of meeting parents and grandparents who say that they used to come to our schools. Last October, we decided to run a Willesborough Schools history week which culminated in a reunion for ex pupils.
The children were treated to an exhibition of Willesborough School history, a dressing up day and some old fashioned lessons.
Over 150 ex pupils attended the reunion event. The oldest ex pupils to attend went to Willesborough school in the 1950s. Everyone was thrilled to find photographs of themselves and their names in old log books. People traveled from East London and East Sussex to attend the event.
The children of today's Willesborough schools have found out more about the history of their schools and have been inspired by the life stories of ex pupils.
We are planning to run a similar event next year.
