Reunion 56 Years On

Students from one of the original two forms at the Shrewsbury Technical High School year of 57 were guests of two former teachers on Saturday 6th July 2013. Some fifty-six years on from the first meeting in their classroom, in what is now known as the Wakeman, students chatted over coffee in a sundrenched Church Stretton, Shropshire garden and shared memories as if they were yesterday. Science teacher Mr David Higgins and Maths and H1 form teacher Mr F I Williams with their wives kept the group in order – just.

The ex-pupils enjoyed a mid-day meal together in a local hotel. The planned hill walking for the afternoon did’t take place as the day had “moved on.”
